Learning Powers at St John’s

At St John’s we have begun an exciting quest to help our children become better learners.

As teachers we can’t possibly teach children everything they need to know to be ready for the world by the time they leave us. But we can inspire within them a love for learning which will remain with them throughout their lives. We believe that, by teaching children how to solve problems and by encouraging them to persevere in the face of challenges, they will develop ‘learning powers’ which can then be applied to whatever skills or knowledge they choose to acquire in their adult lives. We are teaching children how to learn so that they are ready to choose the ‘what to learn’ part for themselves!

We believe there are five key attributes of independent, successful learners. These attributes are represented by colourful characters to represent these characteristics and to help the children understand them better.
