  • Make learning vivid and real: Develop understanding through enquiry, creativity, use of new technologies, and thinking skills; make learning relevant and purposeful.
  • Make learning enjoyable and challenging experience: Stimulate learning through ensuring teaching techniques and strategies respond to the needs of pupils, make creative use of learning opportunities appropriate to the material to be learned.
  • Enrich the learning experience: create an effective environment for learning, infuse learning skills across a broad curriculum, use a variety of learning experiences and the environment, foster curiosity, creativity and imagination.
  • Promote assessment for learning: Make children active partners in their learning, share learning intentions, use success criteria, encourage reflection and evaluation and use effective feedback strategies which identifies next steps in learning for improvement.
