Welcome to Class 3
Our class includes the wonderful children in Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. We are an enthusiastic and creative class. We love to create and innovate together.
As the oldest children in the school, it is our responsibility to set a good example for the rest of children in the school. We are playground buddies and we strive to be ambassadors of the school's values.
Welcome to Class 3!

Class 3 have a GROWTH MINDSET!
This year, the children at Marsh Baldon are working hard to develop a growth mindset. This means that they are trying not to say negative things like: 'I can't do this!' Instead we have been adding the very special word 'yet' to say things like 'I can't solve this problem yet!'
In Class 3, we have also been encouraging each other to consider each piece of work as a working progress and to always think: 'how can I make this better?' We use Purple Pens of Power to edit and improve our first drafts and the children are becoming really good at reflecting on what they have done well and need to improve on.
Developing the children's mindset is really help create a more positive and purposeful working environment in Class 3 and our children are leading the example for the rest of the school. We have decided that we embrace mistakes in our class and prefer taking risks than always staying in out comfort zone when we are learning.
I am very proud of how much the children are adapting their mindsets and will update this section with examples of great growth mindset soon!
Here are some examples of what showing a growth mindset means to us as a class and how we can use our purple pens to edit our work:
