In 2K we have been learning about perseverance.
Mrs Kitchen gave us a toy that had been frozen in some water. The challenge was to get the toy out using the tools that we had been given. We had 10 minutes to complete the challenge.
Mrs Kitchen then asked us some questions:
How did you feel at the start of the challenge?
I was nervous because I didn’t know if was going to be able to do it.
Did you feel like you wanted to give up?
Yes, because it was really hard – Spencer
How did you feel at the end of the challenge?
Great, because I didn’t give up and I was the first to get the toy out – Austin
Mrs Kitchen told us:
Sometimes we must do things that are tricky, and we might feel like we want to give up but it’s important to persevere.
Perseverance means not giving up, sticking at it and being determined even when the task is difficult.
Leaders stick at it!
