During our topic 'Going For Goals' we have taught our class mates new skills. This theme provided opportunities for children to explore learning and the skills and dispositions that make an effective learner. With help the children identified six key learning skills. Goal-directed behaviour was explored more fully and opportunities were provided for children to set a goal and to plan to meet it in a systematic way. Children explored the importance of taking responsibility for their learning and behaviour and thinking about when they might be making excuses. We were encouraged to look at the longer- term future and our dreams and aspirations, using this to help make long-term plans. We spoke about the importance of resilience in overcoming obstacles in order to reach a goal.
