Through 2017-18 we launched our Learning Behaviours in school. Learning Behaviours are fundamental behaviours or characteristics which help people to learn. We have put a lot of thought into which behaviours we think are most important for learning:
- Curiosity & Questioning
- Positive Attitude
- Perseverance & Resilience
- Collaboration (working together)
- Creative and Critical Thinking
The essential idea is that by teaching, coaching and encouraging the children in these behaviours, their overall capability for learning is enhanced – improving their ability to learn in any subject or area. In addition, these are all essential life skills which will help to prepare the children for their future in an ever-changing world.
To help us to introduce Learning Behaviours into school, the children designed a series of characters to illustrate each behaviour. We have also added some simple definitions to aid understanding.
We praise and model these behaviours at all times in school so children gain a good understanding of their meaning and are able to use these skills to help them to become more competent learners.
We use the White Rose Maths Hub resources to deliver our maths curriculum.
