Growth Mindset

This term we have been learning about our mindset. We have enjoyed watching the following clips and discussing the questions –

We were really interested to find out that our brains are like muscles. When we challenge ourselves the neurons connect and make our brain stronger. We sat in a circle and passed around a ball of wool whilst thinking of a challenge for ourselves so we could see the neurons connected. It looked like a giant spiderweb!

We have also thought about how our mindset can help us when faced with a challenge. We have been learning about growth and fixed mindsets and which type of mindset will help us when we find something challenging. We thought about how the brain might look in each of the mindsets and made posters to share our ideas.

Look at us working together in teams to make our posters.
