| Year 2

Learning Powers’ is a concept which we introduced as a school at the beginning of the academic year and have been developing with the children as the year progresses.

Our learning powers help reinforce essential qualities for pupils to develop and apply: perseverance, responsibility, reflection and willingness to accept a challenge.

Each of the four learning powers is 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 learning powers mean to them and why they think they are so important in their learning.
