During the week we talked more about the importance of having a growth mindset and talked about some famous people who had a growth mindset. For example, Messi who plays for Barcelona. He had a growth mindset when he was young, because he didn’t let the fact that his coaches thought he was to short stop him from developing his game.

Messi was told he was too short to play!

Here’s a reminder of what it means to have a growth mindset:


Over the weekend I would like you to pick a famous person who showed a growth mindset by over coming an obstacle. Then I want you to practice our commenting skills by leaving a comment below about a famous person you admire for having a growth mindset.

Follow these steps:

1. First, remark on the last comment made by someone in our class and mention what you like about the famous person they chose to mention.

2. Name your favourite person and state how they showed a growth mindset.

3. Reread your comment to make sure it makes sense and that the spelling/punctuation is correct.


I will start so follow my commenting example.
