4Rs and Growth Mindset
The 4Rs are allowing us to develop a common language for learning across the school. The language is used in all classrooms, with all children.
The 4Rs: Resilience, Reflectiveness, Reciprocity, Resourcefulness
This shared language helps everyone to understand ‘learning to learn’. We hope that this understanding will begin to spill over into life outside school, where parents and carers will be able to reinforce the ideas by encouraging the children to use their learning language in their everyday lives.
The idea is that the four dispositions (4Rs) are like a group of ‘learning muscles’. Just as we can build our physical muscles with the right kind of exercise, ‘learning muscles’ can also be developed and can grow in strength and stamina. It is these we are developing in our children.
