Learning Skills

Understanding themselves as learners and believing that learning is a process that everyone can improve at is crucial to children developing as resilient, purposeful learners who are able to persevere and solve problems. In order to achieve this and work towards our mission for children to be well-equipped for their futures, our curriculum is underpinned by the development of learning skills across the school. We focus on developing these through our ‘split screen’ approach at the beginning of lessons (the lesson objective displayed as well as which skill the pupils will be focusing on and developing through the lesson), through planned activities, using key language within the classroom and in the way that learning is modelled to children. Reflection opportunities will be planned to enable children to acknowledge progress and plan next steps.
