Meta-cognition (or thinking about thinking) is a crucial part of learning. As a staff team, we have used Guy Claxton's model, 'The 4 Rs', and have adapted it to create our very own 'HERO' concept.

Our children are very familiar with using this language to talk about their learning. Each week in assembly, a child from each class (Year 1 to Year 6) is identified and celebrated as a Learning Hero for excelling in one of these areas. In order to further develop our learning skills, we have introduced the 17 aspects which relate to the four main areas. Following a competition in school, we now have pictures, symbols or captions to help us remember this new language of learning. Please click on the 'H', 'E', 'R' and 'O' to see the winning competition entries.
