(Professor Guy Claxton – founder of BLP)
At English Martyrs we are passionate about developing children’s skills to become life-long learners. Building Learning Power is built on four main principles, known as the “4Rs”: Resilience, Reciprocity, Reflectiveness and Resourcefulness.
We are at the beginning our journey of BLP and we have introduced it to the children with an assembly centred on ‘Getting unstuck’. It involves a shift in thinking from being worried about being stuck to celebrating that feeling and exploring strategies to get unstuck.
Each class will have a ‘get stuck’ display in their classroom and we will be giving an award to the Class of the week to celebrate their achievements in getting stuck and unstuck.
