These pupils were interviewed in Year 3 about a Maths lesson they had just participated in. When asked what did the teacher provide to encourage and support them being independent learners, all pupils identified the following:
- Use of the working wall.
- Steps to Success – (How to carry out column addition in this instance).
- The teacher showing them how to complete a question (Modelling).
- The teacher allowing them to ‘Have a Go’ before going to their work activity (Practising).
All of these are brilliant examples of how Heygeen encourages its pupils to be independent learners and take responsibility for their own learning.
