Thought for the week Spring 2024
What makes you feel out of your comfort zone? How do you feel when you’ve stepped out of your comfort zone?
Think about the times you have made a mistake/error. What did you do about it?

In Year 3, we discussed what courage is and how it can be difficult to show courage.

We then drew what the right thing to do is. Here are some of our responses:
