Hob Nob vs Rich Tea

Posted: 9th February 2016

This week Mrs Savill and Mrs Whitehead demonstrated the concept of academic resilience through a quirky medium: biscuits!

The boys were asked to think about challenges they may face with their learning and how to respond with resilience. By showing the boys a Rich Tea biscuit dunked in hot tea, versus a Hob Nob, we showed how with one dunk, the Rich Tea disintegrated and yet with five dunks, the Hob Nob survived. 

We wanted the boys to behave like a Hob Nob, facing multiple challenges with strength and ease rather than dissolve and crumble at the first dunking, like a Rich Tea!

Which biscuit are you most like, when faced with a challenge?
