Succeed – Persist and keep improving

In term 3 Year 5, Hurricane class, have been thinking about what it means to have a ‘growth mind set’, we thought about self-confidence and the ways in which we can develop our mind sets to help us to succeed with not only our learning but in our lives outside of school as well!  Here are some tips to help you to develop a growth mind set:

  • Try not to compare yourself to others; we are all good at our own things.
  • Keep trying, if at first you don’t succeed – try and try again!
  • If you do fail, see it as an opportunity to learn from your mistakes.

Bryony’s deep thinking in Y6, Lightning class during their session about Britain was very impressive. She succeeded in pushing the boundaries beyond our expectations.

This week Y6 (Lightning class) has been successful in contributing to the whole school art exhibition. The children worked together to help set up the hall so that it could look spectacular as it did.

Sunshine class (EYFS) have been very busy getting ready for the Christmas Bazaar. All the children have been making Christmas decorations out of clay to sell so watch this space for the finished result!

This week was Y4 (Storm class) last swimming lesson at The Olympiad. Over the last twelve weeks, all the children have improved both in confidence and ability. All children have worked towards badges and have demonstrated an attitude which has helped them to succeed.
