Effective Learners


The curriculum is underpinned by three 'Characteristics of Effective Learning'. At Hereward, we promote these in a number of ways.


Playing & Exploring - Engagement - Helping children by enabling them to:

  • Find out and explore;
  • Play with what they know;
  • Be willing to have a go.


Active Learning - Motivation - Helping children by enabling them to:

  • Be involved and to concentrate;
  • Keep trying;
  • Enjoy achieving what they set out to do.


Creating and Thinking Critically - Helping children by supporting them to:

  • Have their own ideas;
  • Make links;
  • Choose ways to do things.
