Growth Mindset Day – Crystal Maze Challenge

Posted On 04 Dec 2017

Last week, the children arrived in school to find their classrooms transformed into a space station, a jungle or a pirate island.  The reason?  The school had been turned into a crystal maze challenge!

Children worked in mixed age teams to tackle a range of maths problem solving activities.  They could earn points for their team by showing great maths skills, a growth mindset and a superb team attitude.  After lunch, the hall was transformed for the final crystal maze experience.  Teams’ points were converted into time and each team had time in the crystal dome to complete the final challenge and collect winning tickets for their team.  Well done to everyone who took part and to the winning team!

It was a great opportunity for everyone to develop growth mindset and problem solving strategies, whilst having a lot of fun!
