I have been very impressed over the last couple of years with the way our children adapt to a new challenge. As with all things, we need to reinvigorate our approach to learning. The GROWTH MINDSET idea has faded a little and doubts have been cast on how accurate the YET message is… HOWEVER (it’s a big however), we never saw growth mindset as a isolated approach. We look at barriers to learning, building learning power, talk expectations, learning dispositions and individual needs when planning our learning at CMPS. This means that we can use the ‘BUILDING LEARNING POWER’ approach to identify and impact on our children where we need to the most. Getting ready for September and the new academic year we are starting by looking at concentration. As you see on the front page and on DOJO, the children have been set a challenge. It will be interesting to see how they interpret that challenge over the week and what they feed back to us. I will let you know!
