Learning with a ‘Growth Mindset’

23 September 2016

This half term, children have been embracing the ‘Growth Mindset’ approach to learning. We have worked on perseverance and resilience, and children have been investigating how their brains work and how new connections are formed when they try new things.

This is what we found…

  • Never give up even when it is difficult
  • Learn from each other
  • A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new
  • Mistakes are proof that you are trying
  • We challenge ourselves
  • Our brain is like a muscle– the only thing you need to know is that you can learn anything!

To explore this way of thinking further at home, please watch Mojo and his friends.
