Wow! It’s Week 4 of Home Learning
We have been so impressed with all the fabulous learning that is being posted to us sharing ‘Home Learning’. We know that these are very different times and wanted to give you some support/ helpful words to keep you all going.
Think about the language you use to support and encourage your child. At school we use the language of growth mindset, which means praising the effort and process used rather than the overall outcome. For example, “you’re practising really hard to get better at….” rather than “well done, great job.”
Ask questions like:
• What did you learn today?
• What did you try hard at today?
• What mistake did you make that taught you something?
• What could you do differently next time?
Encourage your child to practice and focus their effort on where they need to improve, also encourage them to stretch themselves. Discuss errors and mistakes and help your child to see them as opportunities to learn and improve.
Try to help your child understand that:
• Effort is the secret to getting better at something.
• Difficult is challenging and this brings exciting opportunities to have a go at something new and to take risks.
• Mistakes are learning opportunities and proof that you are trying hard to improve or learn something new.

When you are doing the challenges, think about how your body feels: Think about what your body feels like before you start your exercising? What does it feel like when you stop? What changes do you notice and why do you think this might be?
