Learning, achieving and enjoying together

  1. Our Curriculum
  2. Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset:

‘People are, to a large extent, in charge of their own intelligence. Being smart – and staying smart – is not just a gift, not just the product of their genetic good fortune. It is very much a product of what they put into it.’ Carol Dweck

To find out more about Carol Dweck's research in to Growth Mindset, here is a link to a video 

We use 'Class Dojo' as a key tool to capture children's successes in class and then share them with you using the Class Dojo app available for download from www.classdojo.com/en-gb/. 

Please click here to find out how our award system works and how we use 'Class Dojo' here at Takeley. Helping to keep you better in touch with the progress your children are making. Please scroll further down the web page to find out more about the ideas and theories that sit behind a 'Growth Mindset' approach to learning.

The Learning Pit

Our children have been learning about ‘Growth Mindset’ to help them understand that when learning becomes tough and they feel themselves falling into the ‘PIT’ to not give up, but persevere. They are not there YET! With help, practice, practice and practice they will get there.

'Class Dojo' videos

The videos below consist of a series of five short ‘Growth Mindset’ clips for children,  if you would like to discuss Growth Mindset at home.
