Growth Mindset

Lons Learning Club!


These are our learning characters that encourage us to have a growth mindset.  Percy Penguin who teaches us to persevere, Responsible Robin who teaches us to be responsible for our own learning, Tommy Teamwork who helps us to cooperate and work together and Resilient Rabbit who teaches us to be resilient and not to worry if something goes wrong. 
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.
