We believe that children will become effective, lifelong learners if they possess the skills that will help them have a growth mindset and an ability to keep going even if they find things difficult.
e.g. collaborative learning; effective communication, ability to understand and follow class and school rules
e.g. ability to apply knowledge and skills in new situations; willingness to learn from mistakes and take risks; ability to revise planning and review own learning
e.g. effort, perseverance and ability to complete tasks; ability to work with energy and enthusiasm, even when the learning is challenging; demonstration of good levels of concentration
e.g. independent learning; ability to problem solve and think creatively; sense of enquiry
e.g. taking care in presentation of learning; demonstrating politeness and good manners; respecting the views of other people, cultures and beliefs
e.g. working on personal targets and learning at home; striving for personal best.
As a school we believe that by developing these 6R skills the children will become more effective, life-long learners who understand why they learn and have a desire to continue to learn.
