keep-trying

We are continuing our focus on how mistakes help us in the learning process.

Do you have any examples you can share with your child about a time when you learned something new as a result of a mistake or, how you continued to practise despite making mistakes and eventually achieved something worthwhile?

Why don’t you share this experience?

mistakes

Although we may feel nervous about making mistakes, if we understand that every mistake we make is progress then we should celebrate and welcome mistakes as a vital part of the learning process. This week we will be exploring how we can support one another to use any mistakes we make to make progress in our learning.

Our next focus in developing a growth mind-set is on exploring just why making mistakes is such an important part of the learning process. Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the why the way we respond to mistakes is a powerful tool that changes our brain and helps us to become more successful.

Our first focus is Our Brains: Why mistakes matter.

Advances in technology have allowed us to look at the electrical activity that occurs when a growth mind-set brain recognises error – it lights up! This is evidence that new connections are being made -exactly what we need to start the learning process.

startThis first full week of learning has been very positive. Lots of learning in numeracy, literacy and health and wellbeing already!  Classes are also busy working on their charters -some classes have  even looked at the values linked to the Olympic games. Children have been prepared for our Drop Everything and Read challenge and a few classes have gone to visit the Book Festival.  Displays are beginning to appear that encourage us to have a Growth Mindset and today’s assembly launched the beginning of the campaign to elect our new Pupil Council Representatives. A busy week . . .

Welcome to the new session 2016
