Year Five 


Autumn Term 2019


Have you ever heard anyone say “I can’t draw,” or “I’m not good at sports,” or “I could never do that?”

As the new school year begins, we will be thinking about developing a growth mindset. By learning that our brain is a muscle which can be exercised and grow, we can all become better learners and be able to face the challenges. We will also be looking at our school values and writing stories to with a growth mind-set moral or message. We will be using three key texts as a starting point, these have wonderful vocabulary and illustrations for us to explore.

The Koala that could- focus on growth mindset

The lion inside- focus on innovation

Squirrels that squabbled- focus on collaboration


Ask your child about these books to find out more - they really know them rather well!
