All of us at Dawpool (staff and children) have been looking at what it takes to be a good learner. We have adopted the ideas of Guy Claxton who refers to the skills we need as learning powers.
These powers are split into 4 main areas:
Reciprocity, Resourcefulness, Resilience and Reflectiveness.
Each week in school we identify children that have been utilising and developing these skills and they are presented with our "Learning Hero Certificates " at our celebration assembly.
