At our school we firmly believe that it is not only the skills and knowledge that children should be taught but also the right learning behaviour to enable them to become Resilient, Reflective, Resourceful learners who build and use Relationships with others to help them learn.
These four 'Rs' are taught explicitly throughout the curriculum with all of the essential vocabulary and core skills. Each term focuses on a different 'R' and there are themed assemblies and rewards to incentivise the children.
When teaching and learning, teachers remind and reward children for demonstrating good Learning Behaviour and children are expected to display good learning habits.
For more information, please do read some of the presentations which have been shared with staff and children.
This term we are looking at improving the children's Resilience over short and long term tasks. We are encouraging the children to take more risks with their learning and have introduced a new character, 'Scaredy Squirrel,' who tries hard to be more adventerous and brave with his choices!
Spring term 2016
This term we are focussing on 'Reflection' as we encourage the children to review their own learning and plan their next steps. There will be opportunities for children to develop their skills of self and peer assessment; both essential learning skills.
