Becoming Purple Learners

At St Stephen's we are all becoming Purple Learners!

 

What is a Purple Learner?

 

A Purple Learner is someone who:

Tries hard

Has a go at tricky things

Thinks for themself

Makes an effort

Keeps going

Does the best they can!

Here is what 6DP said about purple learners:

 

A purple learner is someone who...

'... pays attention all of the time and is focused on their task.'

'... always listens and concentrates. They always try their best.'

'... always gets involved.'

'... always joins in with discussions.'

'... keeps going, even if it is hard.'

'... helps people if they are stuck.'

Movers and Blockers

We have been learning about movers and blockers. Movers are things that move our learning on and blockers are things that stop our learning. In every class, we decided on a class list of movers and blockers. Here are some of them:

Talk!

 

We talk a lot at St Stephen's! Talking can be a really helpful way of moving our learning forward. However, sometimes it can be unhelpful to our learning (a blocker). Watch the videos below and see if you can work out when talk is helpful or unhelpful.

When the going gets tough...

We thought of our own motivational slogans for when we are in the challenge zone and the going gets tough.

We have been appreciating the might of magnificent mistakes in helping us to learn. Here are some of 6NH's best mistakes:
