Characteristics of learning

Learning is not simply about adding to the knowledge bank. It is about 'learning how to learn', even for the youngest children.

At LCS we focus on instilling the following five Characteristics of Learning. Excellent technological provision enables this to happen in unique ways. Pupils are introduced to and taught about the Characteristics of Learning in lessons and assemblies along with their associated age-appropriate questions and catchphrases. Regular discussion and reminders help to embed this knowledge and enable pupils to utilise these skills in school and life beyond LCS.
