Our Core Learning skill this term
Our Core Learning Skill is Becoming Better Learners. We will be focusing on the skills needed to improve our own learning and developing strategies to overcome barriers to learning that we face, remaining focused on a task, avoiding distractions and deciding which conditions help us to learn best. Children will understand that people learn in different ways and that there are different strategies to learning effectively. There is Core Learning Skills lesson each week and there are opportunities to practise our Core Learning Skills all week across the curriculum.
At the end of this theme we are going to celebrate our learning with..
A DT week, with a Dragon’s Den finale.
We would love it if you could:
Make sure you hear your child read at least five times per week and that they learn their weekly spellings and times tables.
