Over the last year we have been working with the children on what it means to have a Growth Mindset. The children have learnt much more about how their brains work and have found out about famous and influential people who have succeeded due to having a growth mindset and not giving up on the ir goal. We have also had PSHE lessons and assemblies about having a growth mindset. This year we will be moving things on a bit further by asking children to apply their understanding of Growth Mindset to their learning.
