Fostering positive attitudes towards learning is as crucial to young learners as any other piece of knowledge or skill I can share, so weekly assembly is the perfect space in which to do so as a Primary School community.
We started off the school year with introducing two of our Learning Attitudes, Independence & Confidence. I am always fascinated by our students’ interpretation of our Learning Attitudes, and no matter how many times we discuss these something new arises, for example ‘Can NO be a word that shows confidence and Independence just as much as YES?’. I loved how students questioned each other, and me in our sorting activity during Assembly!
I am always looking for engaging ways to make the meaning of these words, which is what is really important, stick with students, so what more perfect way than a Sesame Street song! Find the assembly prezi below.
