Welcome to Easterside Academy

"Giving the Chance to Shine"

What makes great learning?

join-in-school-council-J1U5DW-clipart

On Friday 3rd February Mr Dave Elliott one of our new Governors joined me and the School Council to talk about what makes great learning at Easterside Academy.

Mr Elliott and I were really impressed with the children and how confidently they were able to articulate what great learning looks like in school. He was really impressed by their perceptiveness.

The children were set a challenge in pairs to walk around the school and take photographs of ‘great learning’ that they could see taking place. From the discussions and the learning they were able to capture, children identified that great learning has the following:

  • Children focused on their work.
  • Collaboration – in groups / table work / with learning partners.
  • Sharing ideas.
  • Listening to each other.
  • Helping / supporting each other – use of ‘cups’ self-assessment to support and enable this in the classroom.
  • Working independently.
  • Using resources.
  • Being ‘Tough Turtles’ – resilience when facing a challenge.
  • Having self-belief.
  • Following our non-negotiables.
  • And not forgetting enjoyment!
