Building Learning Power
Building learning power is about helping young people to become better learners, both in school and out. “Learning to learn” is the foundation to how we develop as people and to make the decisions we need to be successful in life.
At Cupernham Junior School, it is about creating a culture in classrooms – and in the environment more widely – that systematically cultivates habits and attitudes that enable young people to become better learners; face difficulty and uncertainty calmly, confidently and creatively.
It engages students consciously with the ideas and processes of their own learning in the knowledge that learning itself is learnable.
BLP focuses on the learning “bricks”; the qualities of resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and reciprocity (relationships) and helps the children understand how they can develop their learning skills in these areas, leading to a greater depth of learning across the curriculum.
