Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Practise Makes Perfect

This term we have been learning all about how our brain works. Imagine that you have just learnt to ride a bike.  ​When we learn something new, like riding a bike, our neurons create a new connection. In order to make those connections stronger we can practice! If we practice for example to ride our bike, the connections in our brain will become stronger. We will become even better at our new skill.​

In order to put this to the test, we set up an obstacle course and timed ourselves. We then spent time practising the course and perfecting how to complete each obstacle.


 

When we had completed our practise time, we all attempted the course again. To our surprise, some of us were over 15 seconds quicker!
