Welcome Back

Welcome back to all our 3/4 students and their families. We hope you all had happy holidays and are looking forward to working with you during 2017.

This week we have been getting to know each other and talking about how we can develop growth mindsets to help us learn and grow while working as a team this year.

There are two different kinds of mindsets: growth mindsets and fixed mindsets.

Someone with a growth mindset is likely to:

  • Be keen as a bean to learn from the people around them
  • Understand that in order to get what they want, they’ve got to  put effort in
  • Know that making a mistake is a chance to learn
  • Be aware of their weaknesses, and focused on improving them
  • Welcome challenges
  • Be open to new things and new ways of learning.

The flip side of that is a fixed mindset. Someone with a fixed mindset is likely to:

  • Avoid challenges where they think they might fail
  • Not deal very well with setbacks
  • Try to hide their mistakes
  • Be convinced that their abilities are limited.
  • Practice negative self-talk by saying things like “I can’t do it.”

    Hello 3/4 s
    My mindset is normally a growth mindset. Sometimes I like learning but most of the time I like playing. I have learnt so much about growth mindset. A negative mindset is not good to have, if you do, try to change that.

    Bye for now but not for ever, Alex.

    Hello, my name is Leah, for this year (for the topic growth mindset) I will try my hardest not to get into the fixed mindset area, because that might change my attitude and I might not experience everything that’s going on.

    So I will always be growth mindset for the rest of the year. I am willing to try different things because if I’m interested or not, I will still try it and have a go at it.

    I am looking forward to these subjects: Maths, Kitchen/Garden, Reading, Writing, PA and lots more! I can contribute to our 3/4 area because I know what it’s like here.

    Bye everybody, see you next time!

    Hey guys,

    I am going to talk about growth and fix mindset,
    I think that I have a 100% growth mindset. A growth mindset is about thinking of the positive side of your learning. A fix mindset is when you think there is one way to do something.

    Bye guys
