In Year 1 we have been learning about a growth mindset. Having a growth mindset is all about the right attitude towards our learning.
With this in mind, Year 1’s have discussed that it is hard to grow or learn if we say “I won’t do it”. We won’t grow a great deal if we say “I can’t do it” but we will start to grow if we start thinking, “I want to do it” and we will grow a little more if we say “How do I do it?”. We’ll grow even more if we say “I’ll try to do it” and we will flourish if we say “I can do it”.
The children have started the year with a great positive attitude towards their learning and it is fantastic to hear the children say “I can do it” before each lesson.
Think about how can you apply this message in your life and school work?
