Principles of Learning!
We had a parent meeting about some basic principles of learning at UPS. It evoked questions about how children are supported, challenged and assessed. If you have any further questions or need the slides (which are below) to be explained in more detail, please do let us know! We also discussed how we are starting our metacognition journey to becoming a Thinking School and Mrs Marsland touched on this at the meeting too. Again, see the slides below...
