Building Learning Power
At The Blessed Sacrament we believe that a teacher’s job is to be a facilitator to learning. We believe that teachers can lead others’ learning, by seeing themselves as learning coaches rather than merely purveyors of knowledge.
We also believe that children can learn to be better learners. One of our core aims is to help children understand their own learning behaviours and build better learning attitudes. We do this through the Building Learning Power Project.
We focus on the core learning habits of: collaboration, perseverance, questioning, revising, imagining, listening & empathy, managing distractions, making connections.
In the infant classes, each of the learning habits is linked with an animal.
