We believe that it is important to develop children’s personal, learning and thinking skills at the same time as developing their subject knowledge and understanding. Personal, learning and thinking skills, together with the functional skills of English, mathematics and ICT are essential to success in learning, life and work. Essentially, personal, learning and thinking skills enable children to learn how to learn. They:
draw attention to the process of learning and not just the end product:
engage children in active rather than passive learning;
enable children to go beyond the mere recall of information and to develop deeper understanding of topics;
create positive dispositions and habits for learning.
We have grouped the skills into six strands of skills that capture the essential skills:
skills for working collaboratively
skills for researching and managing information
skills for being a good citizen in and out of the school enivironment
skills for managing emotions, time, resources & behaviour
skills for exploring and developing ideas
skills for evaluating learning
It is these skills that will enable young people to be confident, successful and capable individuals.
