Learning skills

In Cherry Class our young children learn 'how to learn'. We equip them with the skills to learn successfully, in a hope that they become life long learners. We focus not only on the learning they have done but also on how they achieved and set out to do it. We develop these skills continuously throughout their time in our class and this gives them a great foundation to build on, as they move up the school. 
 
Once the children have settled happily into school we start to think about all those skills that help us to learn well. Gilbert Goose is our Learning hero and he is great at concentrating, persevering, reflecting, teamwork, showing curiosity and showing resourcefulness (our school learning skills).
 
If the children are seen developing skills like his they are allowed to take Gilbert home. 
 
The children love being chosen to have him and are always so proud to share what they have learnt with him.
