Year Four have been learning about growth mindset and learning that going for challenges and learning through mistakes can sometimes be the best ways to learn. The children were given the difficult task of making an orgigami penguin out of paper with no instructions. We talked about how it made us feel, whether we gave up or persisted. Then we listened and learnt and followed instructions to make the penguin. We didn’t give up and tried and tried again even though some of the folds were tricky. With our new positive mindset to try the challenge, we ALL succeeded! It was great fun 🙂 hopefully we can apply this to lots of different areas of our learning.
