We love promoting a Growth Mindset at Redwell Primary School. The children are used to saying ‘I can’t do it…YET’ and putting in their best effort to practice to get it right! We also know that making mistakes helps us grow our brain to achieve bigger and better things!
Here is a video which shows how Carol Dweck, an expert in Growth Mindset, advises us to praise children in a specific way to help them develop their own Growth Mindset.
Here are some links too that you can use and read/watch with your children. Very sweet!
