It is going to be tough out there and we dont know what is ahead of us
"I learned that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you're a musician, a writer, an athlete or a businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you'll win; if you don't, you won't. - Bruce Jenner (Olympic Gold Medalist, Decathlon)

I do the work because I have to I do not stick at tasks when they get difficult I find it hard to get started on a task as I am easily distracted I need constant attention from my teacher to keep me on task I am not that bothered about the presentation of my work I only act on feedback if I know my teacher is going to check it I am not interested in taking on challenging tasks
I try a range of available methods and strategies to help me solve problems I persist with work even when it gets difficult I only ask my teacher to suggest another way of doing something or get feedback on my own method I take real care and pride when presenting work I am always looking for ways in which I can improve and learn I love challenging tasks and am happy to work outside school time to improve further I care more about improving myself and learning than my marks as I dont see them as the be all and end all
Classroom Behaviours Failure to have correct equipment Failure to follow instructions Talking inappropriately Not enough work in lesson. Homework not handed in on time.
