Characteristics of Effective Learning

How the children learn is just as important as what they learn. Encouraging them to think about and focus on our 'Learning Superheroes' will help them to develop the skills that they need so they can become life long learners.


There are three areas of 'Characteristic of Effective Learning'

Wise Owl - Creating and Thinking Critically 

Tough Tortoise - Active Learning

Sensible Squirrel - Playing and Exploring 


We also have 'Team Ant' for Personal, Social and Emotional Development 


Below are the photos of the superheroes and their descriptions.
