This Term's Treasures
Well the 2019  Autumn term is only a few weeks old but there has been so much amazing, exciting learning going on, which we will be sharing with you very shortly. In the mean time check out the class pages for a flavour of the fantastic fun.
You are now entering the Learning Pit!

Sounds scary doesn't it? Well let me set your mind at ease-it's not. It's brill.

The Learning Pit, or the Learning Challenge, is used to promote challenge, dialogue and a growth mindset. It was created by James Nottingham. The Learning Pit is a tool and way of thinking for teachers, leaders and support staff to help guide learners in the development of critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinking. It is a model that provides learners with a language to think and talk about learning. It helps build participants’ resilience, collaboration, creativity and independence.

So now you know and when your children come home talking about the Learning Pit you won't immediately think that we've got a petrifying,Mrs Trunchball  inspired "chokey."
