Children Learn Best When
 

The educational practice of Stanley British Primary School is rooted in our mission statement, purpose, goals, and overall educational philosophy. We build on our understanding of developmental psychology and learning theory to create our classroom environments and curriculum. The following chart lists our beliefs about how children learn (in the left column) and the implications for classroom practice (in the right column):

Children learn best when... Teachers need to...
They feel happy & confident -respect & build positive relationships with all students
-value the social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and creative development of children
-create a nurturing, joyful and challenging learning environment
They are interested in and enjoy the activities -plan curriculum that is relevant, engaging and meaningful for children
-provide a rich learning environment
They are actively involved -provide an environment where children can experiment and explore through first hand experience
-value play as the work of childhood
They have time to work at their own pace -recognize that children have different learning styles
-encourage children to make choices and take responsibility for their own learning
-make materials accessible to children
-provide a variety of approaches
They are challenged and can succeed -introduce new ideas and concepts as a child shows readiness
-have high expectations
They know when they are making progress -help children to know themselves
-provide time for self-reflection and sharing
-give specific feedback
-structure curriculum to provide for a continuity of learning
They have opportunities to interact with and teach one another -provide opportunities to learn cooperatively and problem-solve together
