A computer comparable to the human brain would need to be able to perform more than 38 000 trillion operations per second and hold about 3,584 terabytes of memory.
Even IBM’s BlueGene supercomputer, one of the world’s most powerful, only has a computational capability of 92 trillion operations per second and a mere 8 terabytes of memory.
Even if we could bring that much raw processing power together in one computer it still wouldn’t be able to achieve all that each one of us can achieve, because we have not yet fully characterized the nature of memory, let alone consciousness.
So remember to harness your brain’s capability as you plan for success - use visualisation. Use your mind to paint the pictures of success that you desire. When you do this, your brain will act in accordance with your visions.
Expert athletes use imagery and visualisation to run their races in their goal times. Studies show that these athletes who first imagine running the race in their goal time (in as much detail as possible) are then more able to execute it in real life.
“Our lives are a sum total of the choices we make.” Wayne Dyer – American author and motivational speaker
“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” J. K. Rowling - British novelist and author of the Harry Potter fantasy series which have won multiple awards and sold more than 400 million copies worldwide
“Don't lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.” Ralph Marston – Motivational Coach
“Top performance depends on two key elements: maximizing potential and overcoming the barriers to achieving goals.” Will Carling – OBE, former Rugby Union player for Harlequins, and Captain of England from 1988 to 1996
Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. T. Armstrong - ex President of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.
Key Stage 2 = Primary (Years 3-6) Test column Shows scores in end of KS2 national testing (SATS). As per our levels at CCS, 4c is a low level 4 and 4a would be a high level 4. TA column Teacher assessment (not broken down to sub levels)
Darker shaded area This is the grade that most pupils who gained the same KS2 levels as you went on to get when studying this subject at GCSE. Lighter shaded area ‘Gold target’. The most likely grade to get for pupils who make better than expected progress. Expected progress = 3 levels over KS3 and 4. L4s > grade C L5s > grade B and above
Grades column GM and GA replicate the shaded areas on previous slide. GM = likely grade achieved when expected progress is made GA = likely grade achieved when better than expected progress is made (‘S’ stands for star as in A*) DfE Progress These estimates are based upon the assertion that all pupils will make 3 levels of progress, as a minimum, over KS2-4, and does not take into account pupils’ starting points.
Target setting: We believe that you can achieve your FFT estimates (darker shaded area) as a minimum. This is of course dependant on pupils working positively with their teachers, following their advice and consistently giving of their best. Aim high: We believe that together we can surpass your FFT estimate, so we encourage you to aim high.
