To become strong and successful learners, we need to think about what we are doing in our learning and be able to talk about it. Giving our children the language of learning really helps them to move forward and engage in the learning process. Good learning will take children out of their comfort zone but not so much to make them panic. Please download a copy of our Gem Power leaflet here.
