Personal Learning and Thinking Skills 

Personal Learning and Thinking Skills are generic skills which are essential to life, learning and work. 


Each half term we have a focus and we refer back to previous skills taught as the year goes on.

These skills are taught throughout the curriculum to enable the children to be independent learners and develop team working skills.


The skills are differentiated so that even the youngest children can develop the skills.


They are displayed in every classroom and are referred to frequently so that they are an integral part of daily life.
