'Proving is Good. Improving is Better'.
On Friday the 6th of January, CHS welcomed James Nottingham from Challenge Learning into school. James delivered a range of workshops on 'The Learning Pit' and the ways in which it can be successfully used within the classroom to challenge existing thinking, encourage 'new' thinking and support language, communication and collaboration.
The workshops took place in class Newton in Year 2 and class Malala in Year 5. During the afternoon, teachers participated in a professional development session, led by change looking specifically at Growth Mindset and the work of Carol Dweck, building and developing resilient learners and modelling high expectations. More information can be found below in the short video. Moving forward, our teachers will be carrying out some classroom inquiry and developing the Learning Pit at CHS.
Why not talk to your child's class teacher about this during the Spring Parents' Evening?
