Building on our previous work with the children in developing positive learning behaviours through resilience, this year we are focussing on Growth Mindsets – where children understand that their intelligence is not something that is fixed and cannot be changed, rather it can grow as they use it.
A child’s mindset, or personal view of their own intelligence, affects their motivation to learn and their aspiration to achieve. We are aiming for each child to develop a Growth Mindset where they love learning, they value effort and they persist in the face of obstacles.
Our school motto for The Year of Growth Mindset is:
