There are 5 learning habits that we focus on to help you to develop and progress:
Resilience: Dealing with difficult situations, both mental and physical, in a positive way.
Reasoning: Being careful, methodical and logical. Using our minds to work it out.
Reflecting: Learn from your mistakes and reflect on your success. Think about your work and actions and how they help or impede you and others.
Collaborating: Work together as a team. Listen to others ideas and learn to empathise- understand their point of view.
Questioning: Have a lively, enquiring mind and ask good questions. Be prepared to challenge your own ideas.
There are displays in the Sixth Form quiet area/entrance to help you to remember what the habits are and a quick reference poster is on every white board in all Sixth Form classrooms. You can also view them by clicking here:
