Growth or Fixed Mindset?

 

Today we are thinking about what we need to help the brain grow and learn new things. This is called a 'growth mindset'. When we don't help our brains to grow and learn, this is called a 'fixed mindset'. Can you sort the following statement into either things that will help us grow and learn (growth mindset) and things that won't (fixed mindset)? 

 

- giving up 

- making a mistake

-trying again

-likes easy work

- doesn't listen

-believes that you can't get better at something 

-rushes work

-always likes to be right

- tries a challenge

-keeps practising

-being first to finish 

 

Activity 2

 

Watch the clip of the snail below. What kind of mindset do you think the snail has? Why? Introduce the word ''perseverance'' and discuss how the snail shows this. 

 

Challenge: Can you think of any other animals that demonstrate perseverance? Can you draw them and write a sentence about how they do this?

Wednesday Science 

 

For Science you will need: 

A small toy figure frozen in a block of ice (see pictures below)

A selection of materials e.g bubble wrap, tin foil, paper, felt 

Pencil/paper/camera 

 

Frozen!

Recap on your ice block observations from two weeks ago. What did you notice about the ice as it melted? Why was it doing that? What did you learn? Your challenge today is a bit different: this time you have to decide whether you will rescue the toy trapped in ice, or try and keep it in there. Think about materials you could use to either preserve or melt the ice. Use a camera or drawings to record your observations.
