In Year 2 this week the children listened to a lovely story called ‘The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes’. It is a lovely growth mindset book for children which encourages children to learn and grow from their mistakes. In the story, Beatrice Bottomwell has NEVER made a mistake. She never forgets her homework, she never wears mismatched socks and she always wins the yearly talent show at school. She always worried that she would make a mistake. One day, the inevitable happens: Beatrice makes a huge mistake in front of everyone! However, in the end she realised that life was more fun when she enjoyed everything, even the mistakes. They are proof that you on trying!
The children then made bookmarks to remind themselves of this message and wrote their own growth mindset quotes. Da iawn Blwyddyn dau, keep on trying your best and remember mistakes are ok!
