Recently the teaching team have been learning about growth mind-set. Here is some knowledge to help you understand what it means to have a growth mind-set and how you can empower your child to develop a growth mind-set at home.
A person with a fixed mind-set thinks that challenge means failure. They believe that if you cannot do it naturally then you are not good at it. A person with a growth mind-set understands that we learn from mistakes, challenge means extension of ourselves and that learning takes time if we focus and try hard. Our brain acts like a muscle. The more we use it, the stronger and smarter our brain becomes.
"You are so smart"

You tried really hard on that!
What a great friend you are!
You are not afraid of a challenge! I like that!
You remembered to (specific skill)! Great thinking!
