We are thinking about how to change our way of thinking from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
Across the school, we are all learning how to change our way of thinking! Instead of believing we are only good at certain things or are no good at others we are learning that we can develop our brains by positive thinking. Our new mantra is adding 'yet' to the statement, 'I can't do this!' We now say, 'I can't do this yet!' We are thinking of different ways to do this: challenging ourselves, changing our attitude, persevering and learning from our mistakes. It would be great if you could join us to promote this way of thinking. All the adults in school are changing their mindsets too! The children in Year One have been watching a video called 'Austin's Butterfly' about a young boy who perseveres with his drawing of a butterfly by making several drafts until he is happy with his finished result. Ask your child to tell you about Austin!
