Curriculum Overview 2019-20
During the course of this year, we have been working very hard with the children to help them to build a Growth Mindset. There is a lot of research which shows that intelligence is not fixed and that our brain works like a muscle and the more we exercise it, the more it grows.
We will continue to build the children's understanding of how the brain works and how they can exercise their brains to grow their intelligence. We can already see the children using the language of Growth Mindset in school and this is having a positive impact on the children's resilience and learning.
In school, we are working hard to ensure that all of our pupils are developing skills for life. Each half day the children and class teacher will select a Learning Power to focus on and the children will strive to move to Gold on the Zone board by demonstrating that power.
The learning Powers are: Independence, Resilience, Focus, Pride, Challenge and Collaboration.
