Our Wise Learning Skills - OWLS

OWLS (Our Wise Learning Skills)
We are encouraging the children to be aware of the Core Skills that help to make them 'successful learners'.
We are linking how we learn with how our brain reacts in certain situations. We will be incorporating activities into our days that help to encourage the children to ask questions and think about how they learn and what helps them to learn.
An active assembly will be given that encourages the children to think about and understand how they react to lots of different situations. We hope it will help them when they face challenges both in their learning and in their relationships. 
Our last Core skill was ' Getting to Know You'.
We had a range of activities from mixed year group play times, a focus in breakfast club, Grandparents in for our Harvest Festival, amongst many other things. Mrs. Anderson is running a Tea party for the children who complete 3 reading cards; she has a lovely time talking to the children and getting to know them all  really well over tea and cakes.
