Gem Powers - Learning to Learn
Promoting positive learning attitudes and behaviours
In every class our children use their 'Gem Powers' to become better learners. These were devised by Dr. Tom Robson and each one promotes a positive attitude and behaviour; we currently focus on four:
Diamond - Finding ways to solve our problems
Emerald - Persevering to achieve a challenge
Ruby - Being supportive of others
Sapphire - Staying focused and avoiding distractions
