Active Learning

Relates to children enjoying their achievements, reaching goals that they have set out to achieve, children’s level of involvement and concentration and their willingness to ‘have a go’.

Creating and Thinking Critically

Where children choose ways to approach a situation/activity/scenario, use their own ideas and make links, applying what they already know.

At Silver Tree Primary School, we ensure children are able to experience learning linked to all characteristics through the organisation of the environment, planned activities and high quality interactions between adults and children and children and children.

Learning is based upon first hand, practical experiences to capture and engage children. Children’s learning is carefully observed to enable staff to provide next steps to support and extend the children’s learning. The children are also encouraged to plan, evaluate and extend their own learning through discussions, questioning and time provided to reflect upon learning and learning experiences.

Throughout the day in Reception children participate in a range of adult directed activities including Literacy, Mathematic, Guided group sessions and Phonic sessions. There is also the opportunity to develop their own interests and ideas through child initiated learning, during which time staff carefully observe, support and extend learning. Children also participate in weekly PE sessions, Religious Education and daily opportunities to develop interests and in the outdoor environment.
