Developing a language for learning: Learning Words

Our social learning this year is all about 3 new learning words: collaborate, justify and reflect.

At our first INSET day of the year, teaching staff and governors discussed and sorted a range of ‘learning words’ into three groups: those we thought that were ‘in the bag’ and  used confidently by pupils, those in the ‘storage bag’ that would be important but for another time and three words in the ‘carrier bag’ that we thought were the most important for the children this year.

Collaborate, justify and reflect have been chosen and will be developed with the children through enrichment days, lessons, collective worship and just about any learning the children engage in this year.

Look out for  opportunities to join in with our social learning. Your first opportunity will be Living History day (20th October) where the children plan to ‘justify’ the outcomes of their enquiries about a period of British history. You will help decide how well they have justified their findings!
