Pupil Voice

What do you do if you find something difficult?


Ask for help from a friend or a teacher.

Have a go.

Mrs Snowball says ‘If it’s tricky draw a piccy’.

What do you do when somebody in your class finds something difficult?

Help them….

Give them a clue.

Don’t help them – only if they’re really stuck.

Encourage them to do it.
