Building Learning Power
Building Learning Power is an approach to helping young people to become better learners, both in school and out.
Positive effects of developing pupils learning behaviours include raised achievement, improved behaviour, increased motivation, established habits of lifelong learning, increased enjoyment in learning and enhanced creativity.
We introduced Building Learning power last academic year and it has been well received by both staff and pupils. It has had a really positive impact on how children learn in school and we hope these ‘learning powers’ will stick with them as they progress through life.
To help consolidate Building Learning Power in school we recently held a Learning Heroes Day. All staff and children came to school wearing a Learning Hero Cape which demonstrated key learning powers and throughout the day the whole school took part in a variety of activities to show how the different learning powers support and enhance learning.
Throughout the day, children were encouraged to ‘think outside the box’, persevere, work collaboratively and reflect on their ideas. It was amazing to see children working creatively and enthusiastically on a range of activities! We even had a visit from Spiderman in assembly who showed the children some amazing tricks and explained to them how much hard work and training he had to do to develop and perfect his skills.
