For our Living and Learning sessions this week, we’ve discussed the importance of stepping out of our comfort zone and putting our hands up to answer questions – even if we might be wrong.
Our classrooms are a safe place to make mistakes so that we can learn from where we might be going wrong. Our brains work harder and grow stronger when we try to find the correct answer and learn from the mistakes we make.
This is just one example of taking a safe risk at school.
Outside of school, other safe risks might be crossing a road, stroking an animal or learning a new skill. It’s all about the pros and cons and accepting the outcomes.
