The children have been introduced to the language of Growth Mindset. Rather than say ‘I Can’t’ they have been encouraged to say ‘I Can’t Do it Yet’.
We are introducing the children to ‘The Riverview Yeti’ and using stories to show the children it is ok to make mistakes, and we can learn from mistakes we make.
At our school we already used many strategies to encourage children to have a growth mindset but we hope by having a clear focus on this it will help all children to have a love of learning.
If you have any questions or want to know how to support your child at home to have more of a growth mindset please feel free to ask your child’s class teacher.
