We feel that developing the whole child is really important at All Saints, including supporting them in developing their behaviour towards learning. We had an exciting INSET in September to learn all about 'Gem Powers' linked to Tom Robson's project: http://www.tredu.co.uk/the-gem-project/
Diamonds are currently thinking and reflecting as active learners through thinking about the Characteristics of Learning through dinosaurs. They have a display in class where children identify which dinosaur they are and why, thinking about themselves as learners.
Rubies and Sapphires are reflecting through the use of gem powers. Each has a display and will confidently talk to you about the power they are demonstrating or learning to apply.
Each class is working towards a reward target that they have selected themselves, such as a picnic for Rubies and a film for Sapphires.
