*Sciennes Assembly Challenge Yourself 8.9.17


Published on

On Friday 8th September we explored 'Challenge Your Mindset' which is one of ten strategies in City of Edinburgh's Health and Wellbeing programme for "Building Resilience."

Pupils were encouraged to have a Growth Mindset and realise that their abilities are not fixed. Believing that achievement is possible is important, but lots of effort and being open to make and learn from mistakes are also keys to success. We watched videos from Class Dojo and Sport Scotland to encourage us to keep challenging ourselves and keep persevering in our efforts.

Miss McGrouther's P6B class has created a display with inspiring quotes on self belief entitled "Believe in Your #Selfie." Ivy and Alba researched leadership quotes for homework, working hard to impress their teacher with their extra efforts and shared these at Assembly.

The first Maths Week Scotland takes place next week and Ms Mackintosh is leading many maths events and activities in school. Some classes are also taking part in a national Sumdog competition, in school, at home or both.

Today, 8th September, is International Literacy Day and pupils have been invited to take part in the First Minister's Reading Challenge again this year. Reading passports have been ordered and reading challenges will take place throughout the year. One of the first is to join a local library, which then gives access to dozens of free resources such as Mathletics and ebooks.

This week P7C pupils assisted at Assembly in a quiz and in celebrating pupil achievements.

  10. 10. Building Resilience Who we are and what we are good at is not fixed
  11. 11. Building Resilience Skipper has a fixed mindset. What he doesn’t know is how the brain works and that people only get better at anything with effort and practice.
