Dazzle: success, the 'feel good factor'
Learning How To Learn - UNITED
The “D” element of our learning to learn curriculum focuses on the need for children to practice resilience and determination in order to ensure they develop a positive and proactive attitude to learning.
They are given specific tasks which provide them with the opportunities to practice these skills in isolation. Once practiced, teachers will then encourage the children to approach all their learning in this way.
Children who show this learning attitude are rewarded using the class behaviour chart, where they get to move their name up. If the children reach double dazzler this means they have shown positive learning attitudes and have tackled all their work with resilience and determination. This means they have earned 3 credits towards their class end of term treat. Teachers send texts home to parents at the end of every day in order to share this success with them.
Duty/Dazzle assembly on a Friday focuses on praising all the children who have shown they have done their best in their approach to learning during the week in school. Class teachers choose a child who has shown this quality particularly well and they are rewarded with the class star learner trophy for having a dazzling attitude to learning.
