Independent Thinking

As a learner I…

  • will take ownership of my learning
  • will show pride in my work and strive to do better each time
  • will not give up but persevere to overcome difficulties
  • will think about what I am doing and how I can do my best
  • will have high expectations of myself and work hard to improve
  • will give examples and justifications when sharing my thinking
  • will give equal value to the thinking and views that are different to mine
  • know that it’s ok to think differently to others without being wrong
  • will make decisions about my learning based on my own judgments and evaluations and the advice of those that help me
  • will have a positive mindset

Creativity

As a learner I…

  • am happy to take risks in my learning
  • am happy to accept that I will make mistakes and learn from them
  • use my imagination to explore new ideas and link them to my learning
  • can come up with my own new ideas
  • am curious about finding things out
  • want to develop my learning and always try and improve on previous outcomes
  • appreciate that learning can sometimes be challenging
  • know how to solve problems
  • push myself to find out and do new things

Collaboration

As a learner I…

  • will be part of a learning community where my contribution allows others to feel uplifted
  • will work with others to produce outcomes that are better than those that I could be produced on my own
  • will challenge other people’s thinking, respecting their ideas and be prepared to have my own thinking challenged too
  • will take on different roles and responsibilities in a group and make sure that I make a positive contribution the the effectiveness of the team
  • will use my own and other people’s skills to solve a problem in an effective and co-operative way
  • will accept help, whether I have asked for it or not

Reflection

As a learner I…

  • will be responsible for my own progress and development and constantly question myself
  • will reflect on what makes me unique and try new things to find areas that that I have a special talent or interest in
  • will reflect carefully on the thoughts of others before making up my own mind
  • will respond to feedback in a thoughtful way. I will see feedback as helpful and not take it as personal criticism
  • will ask deep and meaningful questions for themselves and think about what the answers might be before making a decision about what they might think
