Characteristics of Effective Learning

The Characteristics of Effective Learning underpin learning and development across all areas and support the child to remain an effective and motivated learner.


Characteristics of Effective Learning



Playing and exploring – engagement

                                        Finding out and exploring

                                        Playing with what they know

                                        Being willing to ‘have a go’


Active learning – motivation

                                      Being involved and concentrating

                                      Keeping trying

                                      Enjoying achieving what they set out to do


Creating and thinking critically – thinking

                                     Having their own ideas

                                     Making links

                                     Choosing ways to do things

You will find these statements on display throughout our classroom. We ensure that our children become aware of themselves as learners through our learning dinosaurs.  We use 'Word Week' to support the children in thinking about their learning. Every week a child from each key group will bring home a learning dinosaur when they have demonstrated super learning.
