Growth mindset in year 1

This week, as a school, we have had a focus on improving our growth mindset. We have worked on lots of activities this week, including a very difficult task of building the tallest tower using just craft straws and a small amount of cello tape, which we did find very tricky. 

However we thought about how this made us feel and how working as a team we were then able to magpie ideas and help each other out to allow us to complete the task.

Later on in the week, we also read the story of the dot, and looked at how Vashti originally thought she was unable to draw, but by the end she had a whole showcase of her art work, which we discussed as a class as this is often how we can feel when we are faced with a new task. We all created amazing art work in the shape of a dot.
