Making our world a better place

Learning to Learn

At Menston Primary School we firmly believe in developing children’s learning to learn skills to enable them to become lifelong learners. We focus on the five R’s of Resilience, Resourcefulness, Relationships, Reflection and Readiness to learn, as well as encouraging children to have growth mindsets.

In Foundation and Key Stage One we begin to develop children’s strategies to become independent learners using stories and characters linked to the five R’s. Weekly assemblies focus on aspects of learning to learn and growth mindsets and children begin to recognise when they demonstrate qualities such as perseverance and resilience from an early age.

In Key Stage 2 children further develop their learning to learn skills and growth mindsets by challenging themselves to become self-managers, developing their teamwork, inquiry and research skills as they move through school.
