Our first week back after Christmas has got off to a great start with the launch of 'Growth Mindset' in our class and the rest of the school. Growth mindset is a way of thinking, learning and taking on new challenges. A person with a growth mindset is open to new challenges, takes feedback and uses it, pushes themselves outside of their comfort zone and shows resilience and perseverance. The children have taken part in assemblies and lots of different activities in class to be introduced to this idea. We have learned more about changing the words we use- instead of 'I can't do this', try thinking 'I can't do this.....yet!'. We have researched how the brain works and even made our own neuron pom poms (which taught us how to persevere as well with a challenge!). We have carried out quizzes to investigate whether we have a growth or fixed mindset. We found out about some famous people who have shown a growth mindset and never given up, even when obstacles got in the way. We are hoping that as the term progresses, the pupils apply what they have learned to their learning and show a positive attitude towards challenges they encounter.
