Learning to Learn

13th May 2016
At staff meeting on Tuesday we focused on the way in which pupils can continue to develop their learning skills. We will be focusing on these characteristics until the Summer Holiday:
 
Noticing – looking at details in your work and finding patterns/connections in your learning
 
Making links – spotting and using connections between different areas of learning and using these to help with your understanding
 
Interdependence – knowing the role that you have in a team at any given moment
 
Distilling – pulling out the essential parts of learning and then using your understanding in future work
All of the attributes focus on pupils’ ability to understand links between different aspects of learning and should help children to understand ways in which to take control of their own learning!
