Primary Growth Mindset Day

Wednesday, 8 January 2020

As part of Growth Mindset Day, the Primary Phase had an exciting visit from UK BMX champion, Mike Mullen.

To start the day, he delivered an inspiring assembly, where he shared his journey of becoming a BMX champion and the setbacks that he had faced. The importance of having a growth mindset and challenging yourself beyond your comfort zone was at the heart of the presentation - particularly during the tricks display, where he jumped over a number of nervous teachers!

Following this, Upper KS2 took part in BMX resilience workshops. Due to their perseverance and determination, they were all able to learn a number of BMX tricks and most importantly, developed their confidence whilst trying something new.

Across the school, all classes took part in a range of practical resilience challenges with a key focus on 'team work'.

Reflection time was also a significant part of the day, as this allowed all children to reflect on their mindsets and set themselves a focus for the term ahead.

The day left both children and staff feeling thoroughly inspired and truly highlighted the power of the mindset.
