We have been working on Growth Mindset this week and on Friday the children were presented with a task of making an origami penguin from a picture, We had comments ranging from 'I can't do that', 'That's impossible', to 'I've got an idea', 'I'm going to give it a try'. We have been discussing how mistakes help you learn and that things may take time and effort but as a learner you can always improve. A mindset in progress. Watch this space!
