Characteristics of Effective Learning and Growth Mindset
At Wolvercote School we aim to support children to develop skills that will enable them to become confident, resilient, 'life-long learners'.
We cannot be sure of what the future will look like. Most of the jobs that our children will go into do not even exist yet.
By supporting children to develop 'learning characteristics' and a 'growth mindset', we hope that they will be prepared for every stage of their education and beyond!
In Reception we have 3 dinosaurs that represent different characteristics of successful and effective learning attitudes. They are known as the 'Achieveosaurus Family'! There is a story to go with each dinosaur which explores their learning characteristics and how these make them successful.
The document below outlines each dinosaurs 'learning characteristics'.
