Metacognition at Hazeldown. 1st April 2021. Year 5.
This week at Hazeldown, we have been continuing to develop our metacognitive understanding in the classroom and on the playground. Using our cycle of metacognition phases, we have given ourselves time to reflect on all aspects of school life including: our friendships, our learning and our own progress. We understand that reflecting on the decisions that we make can not only have a positive impact on moving our learning forward, but can also help us to understand social situations that we might encounter during the school day and improve relationships.
At Hazeldown, we are extremely passionate about supporting our pupils to achieve anything they want in their later lives.
After working alongside Floyd Woodrow, who is an internationally known, motivational leader, we were inspired to use his ‘Compass for Life’ theory to help our children plan their journeys towards their ‘North Star.’
Thank you to Bibi in year 5 for her detailed articulation of her Compass for Life- we have no doubt that you will continue to push yourself and one day, after your career as a detective, you will publish your own book.
What is your North Star? How will you get there?
This week, year 1 and 2 have been helping to get the pond ready for its liner. This mostly involved moving stones out the was to prevent it from being punctured and getting it ready for levelling by the Year 6 children.
