Pupils at a village primary school have created their own thinking caps to promote their ‘can-do’ attitude to learning.

They emblazoned their caps with forward thinking phrases as part of Barrow School’s Growth Mindset initiative. It emphasises a positive learning approach in lessons through the way teachers introduce activities and present challenges as well as the ways in which they praise children.

Head Helen Ashe said: “Gone are the days of children saying ‘This is too hard’ or ‘I can’t do it’ - these phrases have been replaced with ‘This is going to take some time and effort’ and ‘I can’t do it yet’.”
