learning power approach
At St Bernard’s, the learning power approach is at the heart of our curriculum.
The Learning Power Approach is all about preparing children to thrive in a constantly changing world. Learning powered approaches, such as Building Learning Power, teach children not just curriculum content, but how to develop skills as a learner.
We want equip children with the necessary life long skills that will enable them to lead happy and fulfilled lives.
The approach places the children at the heart of an exciting, purposeful and social learning environment:
- provoking curiosity and imaginative thinking
- developing reflective skills
- encouraging determination and perserverence
- valuing collaboration in the learnin process.
There are 8 learning powers and within thos powers there are a set of muscles.
CURIOSITY- wanting to know more about what you are learning and to be excited about new ideas.
These are the muscles within curiosity:
Wondering- to have an inquiring mind about the world around them
Questioning- to know what question to ask and when, to be able to challenge ideas
Exploring- to be adventurous in learning and to seek opportunities outside their comfort zone
Experimenting- actively 'grapple' with new or difficult ideas. To be a powerful learning you have to engage in trial and error
