You may be thinking “what are learning behaviours?” or “are there behaviours that just apply to learning?” Well, we consider learning behaviours to be key values that help us to learn better…

To kick start our Building Learning Behaviours launch, we invited ADAM WALKER to talk to Year 3 to 6 about his confidence and resilience.

In 2006 kettle and toaster salesman Adam Walker watched a movie on an airplane and decided to take on one of the Worlds most ultimate challenges and swim the English Channel. This lead Adam on a path to change his life forever. He went on to swim 6 more channel swims and successfully completed each one on his first attempt.

Adam’s story really inspired our learners and gave them the confidence to realise that if you put your mind to something, with a lot of hard work, you really can achieve it.

We feel that our four Learning Behaviours are key to successful learning and our children being successful citizens. Back on December we launched our Building Learning Behaviours initiative with a full day of activities based around learning about our four key behaviours.

Every child from F2 to Y6 was put into a mixed class to encourage us to make new friends and work with children from other year groups. We did lots of practical activities based on confidence and resilience. After this, we went back to our normal classes and worked on the other two behaviours: respect and responsibility.

I wish we’d have learned about these earlier – they’re going to make a big difference to my learning – Y6 pupil.

As a school we actively promote our Learning Behaviours in and out of the classroom environment.

Ask your child what they have done to improve their Learning Behaviours, I’m sure they’ll have a lot to say.
