Growth Mindset

Our whole school learning power for the autumn term is Engagement and our character that represents that learning behaviour is the wide-eyed owl, called Barney.

Barney Owl

1
I come in to school each morning ready to work.
1
I can concentrate on my work for a sustained period of time.
1
I have a positive attitude to my own learning and towards other people’s learning.
Barney Owl

Our motto is:

It’s ok if you don’t know
But it’s not ok if you don’t try!

Making mistakes help us learn and thoughts help us grow!

Remind your child that: “I can’t do it,” does not exist. Encourage them to think,

“I can’t do it…. Yet!”

On occasion, the children will be randomly paired up with a new learning partner. This helps to develop the children’s relationships with their classmates and ensures that all children are involved in whole class discussions.

PE kit:

Please could we have PE kit in school at all times.
1

1
