What a great blog entry! We’ve talked a lot about Growth Mindset over the years and we know in our school, knowledge doesn’t just “wash over us” in the night. We know we have to identify the things we need to work on and really put in the effort. We’ve applied this to all sorts recently: learning our multiplication tables, learning doubling facts, improving our writing and becoming better athletes.
Keep up the good work.
At school we are trying to work with a ‘Growth Mindset’.
What is a growth minset?
“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”
This week we looked at success and failure and what we can learn from it. We linked it to our learning in Black History month.
