Our school embraces the 16 ‘Habits of Mind’ as a way of clarifying educational aspirations and targets for our pupils. They provide a framework and common language for students, teachers, school leadership, parents and the wider school community to share when discussing and planning for the development of our thinking.
The following habits are becoming established now, with children able to use them and discuss the associated vocabulary with confidence.
The corresponding images are displayed around the school.
This success has been due to the whole school commitment to making the Habits work by referring to them when appropriate to support a child’s thinking and approach to situations.
Striving for Accuracy and Precision
Applying Past Knowledge to New Situations
Responding with Awe and Wonderment
Thinking and Communicating with Clarity and Precision
