We enjoyed our first whole school assembly yesterday (click above for slides) where we welcomed all the children back and introduced new members to the Kirknewton Community, look out for details in the August Newsletter.
It is important at the start of a school year to remind ourselves that we can do anything 🙂 Things can sometimes seem different at the start of the year, some things might be new or more challenging, but we can overcome these challenges.
The children were able to share with us and learned that using a Growth Mindset means:
- believing in yourself, using positive language
- listening to feedback about how to improve
- trying new things and challenges
- practice makes perfect!
- you making an effort
- never giving up- bounce back and persist even when it’s tough
When we use a Growth Mindset we are helping our brain to get bigger, we are exercising it like a muscle.
