Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning


The Characteristics of Effective Learning describe behaviours children use in order to learn. To learn well, children must approach opportunities with curiosity, energy and enthusiasm. Effective learning must be meaningful to a child, so that they are able to use what they have learned and apply it in new situations. These abilities and attitudes of strong learners will support them to learn well and make good progress in all the Areas of Learning and Development.

As a school we have decided to create a child friendly way of promoting these behaviours. We feel that this will allow children to develop their own unique learning experience while they are in both Nursery and Reception. This will also motivate and encourage the children to learn through different ways.
