Sherborne House School's Learning Powers are a concept which we introduced at the beginning of the academic year 2018 and have been developing with the children ever since.
Our Learning Powers help reinforce essential qualities for pupils to develop and apply:
- Willingness to accept a challenge.
Each of the four Learning Powers are represented by a character which was created by the children themselves, giving full ownership of this concept to the children.
Children are encouraged to be successful by using each of these powers in and out of their lessons and to recognise their achievements. At the end of the week, each class reflects on their work and records their successes. Children are taught to build on their successes and so carry their learning forward.
Watch a short video of some Year 2 children explaining what the Learning Powers mean to them and why they think they are so important in their learning.
This week, Sherborne House are participating in lots of activities dedicated to Anti-Bullying Week. Today, pupils and staff are wearing odd socks and there will be a parade at the end of afternoon break, with a special prize going to each year group [..]
We were absolutely delighted to help support one of our parents on her recent expedition up Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for children's charity The Murray Parish Trust. Read more about her incredible work: http://ow.ly/yX3n50x7pKw
