Learning with a Growth Mindset

Farsley Farfield Primary School.



Week 4 focuses on the importance of ‘mistakes’ and understanding that they are a vital part of the learning process.

The statements for the week are –

  • I can learn from my mistakes.
  • I know that ‘failure is the key to success.’

KS1 Assembly.

In our KS1 assembly we are going to think back to the stories we have explored so far in our assemblies.

Did the characters in these stories make mistakes? Did they experience failure?

What did they do when they made a mistake or failed?

We’ll share another wonderful story by Peter Reynolds, called ‘The Dot.’

During assembly the Year 2 Recorder group will play for us all. They will share their experiences of making mistakes and learning from them.

Back in class we will continue to use the Farsley Farfield Feedback Forms to help us reflect on our learning, knowing that mistakes help us learn.

Tuesday’s Special Assembly.

mr tiffany juggler

On Tuesday we will be lucky enough to have an extra special assembly. We will be visited by a Mr Tiffany! Not Mr Tiffany, who teaches in 5/6T, but his brother, who is a famous juggler. He started juggling when he was 7 years old and has now been listed amongst the top jugglers in the world. How many times do you think he dropped a ball? How many hours do you think he practised and still practises now?
