Inquiry - Growth Mindset

Today we were given a paper model and we had to try and recreate it. As this was happening Miss Tangney wrote down some phrases we were saying while we were doing the activity. We then discussed if they were fixed mindset or growth mindset phrases. This is a picture of some of things we said while completing the activity. (f for fixed mindset, g for growth mindset)

Intermediate reward

This week the intermediate reward was a water fight. We all had a lot of fun, and all deserved it after a fantastic first week.


As part of inquiry this week we were thinking about our classmates and how we could describe them and their strengths. Come and read these a bit more closely upstairs.


We created data cards about ourselves. We will use these to investigate questions about our class.
