Growth Mindset

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. 




On Thursday 19th January, Class 7 led the school in worship.   Our worship was all about Growth Mindset, which we have been working on in class.  We explained about how you need to grow your brain and that taking risks and coming across challenges are important for this.  Bailey and Blake demonstrated how you are not born with the skills you need to ride a bike, but with patience, hard work and perseverance, you can learn how to do it.  Rhys and Isobel showed us how we move through the Learning Pit when we try something new.  It is okay to find things difficult because this is an important part of the learning process.  Aaron made a wonderful brain policeman, who made sure that everyone was using the right words........not 'I can't do it", but 'I can't do it.....YET!".  Our scientists explained all about how our brain works and showed us a model of what our brain looks like.  We all enjoyed contributing to our class worship and were really pleased to see so many of our family and friends here to watch us.  Thanks for coming!
