6L Our ‘Leading Learners’

Anyone can be a ‘leading learner’. This is the term we created to describe a person who can explain their understanding and support others as they strive to be successful. We could all think of a situation in life where we have helped someone to learn a new skill or improve skills they already had.
In the last couple of weeks, we have been putting our ‘leading learners’ to good use. Children who were confident with the formal method for column multiplication worked with children who felt less confident. The results were incredible. Working together in this way also allowed us to practice valuable social skills like how to communicate clearly and respectfully with each other. Everyone’s confidence levels increased and some children who began the week as less confident learners felt able to volunteer to become a leading learner! Remarkable! 🙂

  1. What a great idea! Explaining things to others is a fantastic way of making sure you know it yourself.
