In year 6, we started the school year by looking at our school values - in particular, perseverance. We know we have a tough year ahead, so we wanted to make sure that we had the right mindset to tackle all the challenges that come our way.
We completed some work based around growth mindset. We looked at famous sports people who had identified the struggles that had occurred in their career. Although they had faced tough times, they battled through and became even better and that's what made the reward so beautiful.
Using the learning pit, the children identified aspects of their life that they found tough and then made sure that they had a growth mindset attitude towards this. The results look fantastic and we have all pledged to remind each other to adopt this mindset throughout the year.
