We have been exploring the attributes of learning this term in some assemblies. We have focused on Growth Mindsets and FAIL meaning - First Attempt In Learning and that it can take several attempts (often between 6 - 10 times) before improvement can be seen. We have looked at some famous people who have been labelled as failures early on but have overcome this to succeed at the highest level and we have had some fun with looking at what is persistence. Finally we have looked at how children have followed their passion and desire to succeed, overcoming the impossible and taking others with them on the way. The children have asked me to share some of the clips we have used so here they are. If you are interested in finding out more I would recommend looking at clips of Carol Dweck and her information around 'The growth mindset'.
