Building Learning Power!

We have been thinking, over the last couple of weeks, about how we can build ‘Learning Power’.

Building Learning Power (BLP) has been developed by Guy Claxton, initially for secondary schools. BLP is about:

  • Helping children become better learners
  • Developing children’s portable learning power
  •  Preparing children for a lifetime of learning

 

We have adapted his work for our younger children. We have been talking about how we can build ‘Learning Muscles’ to increase our Learning Power.

We have been finding out a bit about the brain:

 

We've decided that we want to 'grow' our brains by exercising our 'Learning Muscles'.

 

So, we've expanded the 'A' in our ARC motto (Achieve; Respect; Care) to show the key Learning Muscles we want to exercise and strengthen:

A = Determination + Curiosity

       + Reflectivenes + Cooperation

Currently we are focusing on developing the Learning Muscles of Determination and Cooperation.
