You are Awesome Project

You have hopefully now received the ‘You are Awesome’ pack through the post. This is a great book and an important read to help students transitioning from primary to secondary. We would like the students to complete the ‘You are Awesome’ project and expect them to bring their completed workbook and book into the academy when we return in September.

You Are Awesome by Matthew Syed can help you do just that, inspiring and empowering young readers to find the confidence to realise their potential. The book uses examples of successful people from Mozart to Serena Williams to demonstrate that success really is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired. With hard work and determination, practice and self-belief, and, most importantly, a Growth Mindset, there's no reason why anyone can't achieve anything.

In the next week, your child will receive a copy of this book and a workbook to complete alongside the reading. This will be sent to you via the post. Each section in the book comes with its own PowerPoint to go through and explain each activity. Linked PowerPoints will be added in due course.
