Our focus on getting our children to be confident learners starts with ACHIEVE.

A stands for Asking questions.

Mrs Charlesworth found the following and shared with staff:

'Two years ago I was saying to my students "Do you have any questions?".
Last year, I switched to, "What questions do you have?" It made a difference.
Today, I tried, "Ask me two questions." And they did!
And those questions led to more questions.
It amazes me that the simplest things have the biggest impact.'
Andre Sasser

It will be focus of our Monday assembly today. I wonder what the impact will be in school in encouraging our children to take more ownership of their own learning.
