Communication and Collaboration
As children develop, it is important that we nurture their communication skills so that they are capable of expressing themselves clearly and confidently, verbally and non-verbally, in all aspects and areas of their life.
We want our children to feel confident when speaking in front of a crowd and when engaging in conversation with others. Body language – how we present and express ourselves non-verbally - is a really important aspect of learning that we will also help them to develop across all aspects of school life.
Collaborative learning develops children’s higher-level thinking skills as well as boosting their confidence and self-esteem. Children will often be asked to work in groups of varying sizes and in doing so will develop their social and interpersonal skills.
Children may not always find academic subjects easy; they may not perform well in exams but by ensuring that our children are able to communicate and collaborate they will be well equipped with the skills to build a successful future.
