'Quite often pupils have a negative attitude towards maths and it is this, not their ability, that holds them back. I worked with a P5 pupil recently who always approached every maths task with an 'I can't do this' mentality. We changed her mantra to 'I can't do this yet' which enabled her to complete the question and achieve success.'
