Are we all born with natural intelligence/ability, or can we develop it? As a school, we strongly believe that success is a combination of natural ability/talent (what we are born with) and mindset.
What is “Growth Mindset”?
· Intelligence is not set in stone
· The belief that we can all improve
· Knowing that our talents can be developed
· Knowledge that we can be better
As a school we have been doing a lot of work with the children about “Growth Mindset”. We spend time identifying the attitudes and behaviours we need to work on in order to improve. This term we will focus on:
· Overcoming obstacles (keep going if we get stuck)
· Taking risks
Please continue to encourage and praise your children when they persevere, in particular, with their home learning.
