B Cador: September 2018
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.

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.
