Growth Mind-set

In the first two weeks of school we explore the book "I can't do this" where Fortitude reaches for the stars until one day a terrible thought threatens to topple his dreams. Luckily, as we read the book Fortitude discovers the power of "YET!" 

In the classroom we develop our growth mind-sets towards different areas of learning. We learn what to do when we get stuck on a piece of work, how our brains grow and the importance of making mistakes.
