Lons Learning Club!
These are our learning characters that encourage us to have a growth mindset. Our Amazing Brain - a muscle that can grow, Percy Penguin who teaches us to persevere, Target Tom who encourages to keep aiming at new challenges, Sammy the Seeking Squirrel who wants us to use our brain to seek the answer and be resourceful and Raj the reflective owl who wants us to adapt and change if something isn't working and to reflect on what we have learnt so far.
We want our Lons children to understand that their brain is a muscle that needs to be exercised so that it can grow and to understand that if they don't know something they mustn't give up but to think I can't do this YET.
Growth Mindset learners love a challenge and do not get discouraged when something is tricky. We hope you can see the value in this and will encourage your children to continue this at home.
