Congratulations to the four children in Year 6 who received an actual golden ticket, inviting them to the Essex Schools KS2 Mathematics Competition Final!
We are very proud of these four mathematicians. They have accomplished something very special by believing in themselves and showing the school values of passion, aspiration and resilience in the way they approach their learning in maths.
Here’s the poem Mrs Baker read out for reflection time in assembly today. Leave a comment below explaining what you think the message of the poem is…
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but think you can’t,
It’s almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a person’s will.
It’s all in the state of the mind.
If you think you’re outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the person who wins
Is the person who thinks they can.
