CPDS celebrated Chinese New Year last Friday. It was a wonderful experience as many of the CPDS Chinese parents came to share their culture with us. We were fortunate to be able to taste dumplings and red bean buns made for us by our wonderful parents. Room 25 presented a play on the legend of Chinese New Year during assembly. Jifei's grandmother performed a sword dance and a fan dance. We were fortunate to watch a professional Lion Dance performance.
Xie Xie parents.

On Thursday, Room 25 discussed "Growth Mindset" . We discovered that there are 2 types of mindsets. A fixed mindset and a growth mindset. We listened to Mrs Singh read 'Your Fantastic Elastic Brain' .
Some of the words that were new to us were neurons, neuroplasticity, constructive feedback and malleable. We worked in pairs to find out what these words mean and discussed these words with our friends.
