Teaching and learning is underpinned by the 5-a-day principle (Education Endowment Foundation) with a focus on how we learn (metacognition) alongside what we are learning. Children are able to articulate their learning through our 3 key questions ‘what are we learning, why are we learning about it and how are we learning about it’. (What? Why? How?)
The environment engages and inspires pupils but is also language rich to support the pupils’s oracy and writing development throughout the learning journey. Children are encouraged to use the environment independently and work is celebrated in a variety of ways. The use of washing lines across each class ensures children know where they can find the information, they need to be successful with a ‘what a good one looks like’ (WAGOLL) available for children to use.
