Learning to Learn at St. Anne’s

At St. Anne’s Primary School we teach children about different learning dimensions to help them with their learning. Each of the learning dimensions is represented by a character to help the children understand what the aspect of learning is. We look at characteristics such as resilience, creativity, making connections in our learning and developing learning relationships. This year, each term a new character is introduced linking to our SEAL theme for that term.
