Don’t Give Up / The Power of YET

Lawford Mead Primary is a ‘Growth Mindset’ School.  That means we all believe that everyone can improve and achieve success through effort and determination.  That is why ASPIRATION and RESILIENCE are two of our values.

In both assemblies today we watched two music videos with lyrics that contain a growth mindset message.  We then came up with words of encouragement that we can say to our friends when we see them facing a challenge.  Here are some examples…can you add more in the comments section below…?

“Don’t give up.”

“You CAN do it!”

“Stay calm.”

“Keep on trying.”

“Believe in yourself.”

And if someone says “I can’t do it”, we say “You just can’t do it YET!”

Of course, if you are finding the learning difficult, you can say these to yourself too.

Who will you encourage this week?

  • Hi I’m Yeti. My favourite word is Yet. Don’t say you can’t do it. Say you can’t do it YET.

    I really like those songs, because they remind of things to say to other people when they need encouragement.

    Sesame street has the wisest words.
    But seriously.
    If you can’t do something and you give up then you won’t be motivated to do anything and you won’t do it.
    There were no commas in there,I know.
