Challenge Your Mindset!

| 1 Comment

We launched the final part of our Building Resilience toolkit for this year- Challenge Your Mindset!

Developing a Growth Mindset is not a new concept for our school but an important one to revisit!

The areas we will cover are:

  •  Who we are and what we are good at is not fixed
  •  The way we think, feel or learn shapes our brain
  •  I can change through the choices I make

We discussed the temptation to shy away from a challenge and how mistakes are great for our learning. The children heard how author JK Rowling had a growth mindset when her first publication was rejected 12 times! It was the thirteenth publisher who recognised her talent and brought her to stardom.

We listened to a song from Bruno Mars and Sesame Street about not giving up and learned about the power of the word YET.

Our challenge in school is to continue to use this language to help us learn and grow!

Further information and Home Learning will be sent home on Monday 29th April. If you can’t wait until then-today’s assembly is attached below!
