What did you learn in school today?

At our recent assemblies we launched our focus on Metacognition.
Over the coming weeks we will be finding out more about how we can become better learners by understanding how we learn and what strategies we can use to plan, monitor and evaluate our learning.

Our first step is to ensure we use the language of learning.

We want to become skilled at describing our learning – not just the task we did.
To help us, we have a chart of some common learning vocabulary. Please encourage us to use the words on the sheets when we share with you what we have been doing in school.
The aim is that this becomes second nature and that we have the words to help us plan, monitor and evaluate or learning effectively.

Our Learning Vocabulary:

Nursery

Primary 1

Primary 2- Primary 4

Primary 5-Primary7

You don’t have to just use the one for your class – why not explore the others!

Consultation

During the Parent Consultations (20/10/15 and 22/10/15) a number of different options for Home Learning were shared. We detailed the purpose of home learning and our central aims in creating a new approach.

There was an opportunity for parents/carers to vote on the preferred format and make suggestions to ensure the model we adopted for Home Learning is:

  • valuable
  • enjoyable for all
  • provides opportunities for children to be creative
  • providing choice in the tasks and how learners undertake them.

Please follow the link for more information on our new approach.
