In order to help each individual child with their learning journey, we have implemented five key learning characteristics. This approach is to help all children become better learners, both in and out of The Mary Towerton School.
These learning behaviours are Resilience, Reflectiveness, Risk taking, Relationships and Resourcefulness.
These learning characteristics help facilitate a positive culture in classrooms that cultivates learning habits and attitudes that enable children to face difficulty and uncertainty, calmly, confidently and creatively. This is not an approach that is additional to teaching; it is an integral part of it, embedded in everything we do at The Mary Towerton School.
We want our children to be sufficiently confident to take risks, understand and acknowledge both their strengths and weaknesses and welcome challenge and complex learning. We want them to enjoy the struggle, seek those tasks which are stimulating and inspiring even if they are demanding. We also want our children to learn to work effectively in a team and alone.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
