Year 5 Growth Mindset

Year 5 – Brain Power!

How does the brain work? What does it do?

Which part of the brain does what?

Children learnt about neuroplasticity- the idea is that the brain can continue to grow and change throughout life. By choosing challenging and new activities rather than doing the same things, your brain creates new neural pathways!

Children from 5T have made models considering what to make the brain out of? Why they have you chosen that? Which part of the brain will they include?
