Characteristics of Learning


Characteristics of Effective Learning

We also integrate the Characteristics of Effective Learning into all aspects of the EYFS curriculum. These are: 

  • Playing and Exploring - engagement. This incorporates finding out and exploring. Playing with what they know and being willing to have a go.   
  • Active Learning - motivation.  This is how involved the child is, how well they concentrate, keep trying and how they enjoy achieving what they set out to do.   
  • Creating and Thinking Critically - thinking.  Do they have their own ideas, how they make links with their learning and choose ways to do things.
