Mindfulness and Growth Mindset

After, ‘Hi5s  and welcome backs,’ Mr Guy prioritised focusing on developing an awareness of, and exploring mindfulness and how to develop a growth mindset.

Mindfulness is defined as, ‘a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.’

Fixed Mindset Vs Growth Mindset

Those with a fixed mindset see intelligence as being inherent. They are good at some things naturally and see no reason to develop other talents or skills beyond their current abilities.

Those with a growth mindset see intelligence as fluid; something which will increase and flourish through hard work, grit and resilience.

We will be equipping the children with strategies that they can use to relieve life’s stresses and live happy, healthy and successful lives.

The Victorians

Life in Victorian Times is our term one topic and it has lent itself perfectly to connecting the learning between the different subject areas. As you can see from the pictures, the children have created fabulous first person narrative stories linked to our class novel, ‘Street Child,’ and they used the classic coffee staining method to give that aged look and feel. They have used computers and iPads to research information on the topic and present their findings in creative ways. The children have also used a variety of media to create Victorian themed art. Bring on term 1B as we have to add in more ICT and practical science to the topic 🙂
