Reflect on a time that you have been in the pit.
When I was learning about decimals I was in the pit. I felt quite stressed but I put myself in the pit by going to lots of individual workshops, and doing lots of work at home.

How did you feel when you where in the pit.
I felt annoyed and cross because some of my friends had moved up and at home dad was making me do extra work at home, but it all paid off!

 Well done Hannah! I like the colours on your picture because they pull the reader in and they go together also, I like you clear hand writing, it makes the poster easy to read. Maybe next time you could put your 3 things you say to yourself in the pit on the poster. Ana

  1. A fabulous post about the learning pit Hannah - well done! Now you know that it's ok to feel challenged and frustrated because that's how good learning feels. Keep putting yourself in the pit! You're awesome!
