Our learning superheroes help us learn!

We want our children to be lifelong learners who leave us both wanting to learn more and with the skills to do. We use our learning superheroes to teach our children how to be resilient, independent, creative, fearless and collaborative learners. The children are introduced to the superheroes one by one, are given feedback about their learning using the superhero language and it is celebrated when they are seen to be showing ‘superhero’ behaviours.
