The Foundation Subjects: Learning to Learn!
At Twin Sails, we organise the delivery of our Foundation subjects into Topics. We believe that children need to have the opportunity to develop skills for life, i.e. to become 'Lifelong Learners'.
At Twin Sails, we therefore teach our topics through a skills-based approach, where children are able to explore, plan, experiment, reason and be creative!
We call this approach 'Learning to Learn!'
At the start of a topic, children will experience a Sparkly Starter, they will then be asked to think about what they want to learn, and teachers will plan learning opportunities around these questions, whilst also covering the content of the National Curriculum.
We want children to have some ownership of their learning, whilst also developing the 5Rs (Resilient, Resourceful, Responsible, Reciprocal & Reflective).
Most of all, we want children to develop and embed knowledge which they can use, apply and transfer within their learning. The skills children use help them to apply the knowledge they have learnt. We want our children to have a love of learning!
