All children will say:
OUR LEARNING METHOD is called: I-Shine Learning
What is it?
The children are immersed in a positive learning environment. Many features of a normal school are in place however, the ethos of positivity, kindness and colour enable pupils to gain an inner happiness and selfless confidence. We have devised the most effective method for our children that works with relevant and exciting our curriculum. The three key areas that we focus on to make it all work are pupils, adults and school environment.
Pupils: The children develop 3 amazing POWERS….
Ipower - the ability to think for myself, be creative and make sensible decisions eg work hard, solve problems
Colour Power – the ability to use colour to assist in the development of six life skills - positivity (yellow), sociability (red) confidence (orange) dependability (green) kindness (pink) adventurousness (blue).
Smart Power – the ability to begin to know your talents and to develop them.
Adults: The 3 ways we work…..
