Together We Can Achieve Excellence

Curiosity and Enquiry

Great questions help us learn and change the world, for the better, if we keep doing the same thing nothing will change, the problems we face will never be solved

Know that no question is too silly to ask 

Class 1

I ask questions about my learning

I can talk about my learning today and yesterday

I look at books to find out more

I listen to find out more

Class 2

I think about my learning and ask questions to find out more

I read to find out more

I know how my learning today links to work I have done in the past

class 3

I ask questions to find out more

I do not expect to get the solution straight away

I look for links between my learning to help me remember

I enjoy solving problems, even when the solution is hard to find

class 4

I am self-motivated find out more, independently, to support my learning at school

I talk with others to support my thinking and I am open to hearing and building on different ideas

I think carefully to solve problems, trying out different ideas to find the best solution, even if it was not my idea

I ask thoughtful questions and look for answers

At Home

Ask your child:

  • What questions did you ask at school today?
  • What was your best question today?
  • What do you want to find out tomorrow?
  • What did you do that took courage?

Build with lego, create a new recipe, draw, paint, write a song or a story, make a film, read anon-fiction book or watch a documentary
