            What does Participating and Contributing look like?                                         

It looks like Carter and Lucas tipping out the blocks so they can both see what they need.
It looks like sharing the glue brushes and scissors and asking people to help with cutting.
It looks like following the instructions in the book, helping each other and creating a finished product.

                           What GRIT looks like in action!

Jonte and Luke worked and problem solved together to get the tent up then had a great time being inside it with beanbags and cushions.

Well done boys! You look proud of your hard work.

We are learning how to compromise. There was space for 6 people to draw under the table and lots of children wanted to do it. Some children had to wait for a turn and some chose another activity. 

Using our imagination and building rich language.
Kingi, Ibanez, Vida and Mackenzie used their imagination to hatch dinosaurs, put invisible motion sensor cameras up to take photos and fences up to keep the dinosaurs in. 


We are learning to compromise and take turns at the cafe. Some of us are the customers and the rest of us are the baristas.

Working Together

Harley, Uzair, Mohaiman worked hard building a dog kennel. After they talked with each other,  they decided to compromise and build something together, instead of separately. It required lots of persistence and grit. Well done!

Being creative

Lucas, Vida, Jasmine, Tia and Liam used props to help them create "The Lido". They had pools, changing rooms and a hydroslide. They really used their imagination.

Liam and Sophie worked together nicely to make a Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory trap. They used their imagination to come up with a story and create the different traps.
        Working together - being a friend

Steven really wanted a 
chalk shape of himself on the concrete.
Jonte offered to draw around him. Then Steven wrote his name and was very pleased with himself.
Thanks Jonte for helping Steven do a job that he couldn't do by himself.

Think about who felt good after this. Was it just Steven? Or was it Jonte and Steven?
