The 6Rs

6Rs assembly

Every term we celebrate 6 achievements in each class  through our 6Rs project. Even during Covid, we recognised those pupils who had demonstrated the characteristics of our 6Rs super heroes. In fact, we all needed to show strong personal qualities and flex our learning muscles to overcome the challenges of the last 18 months. And… we did it so well. Congratulations to everyone and especially those who received a 6Rs certificate in the last year. Hopefully we will be back to face to face award assemblies very soon.

To look forward to this, please have a look at the last face to face 6Rs assembly photos and video!

 6Rs video

The school council made a film to promote our school project the, 6Rs.
The film was great fun to make and the children also edited it, put on the sound and the music too. Mr Brown and Mr Jordan also starred!

The 6Rs

Stokes Wood has implemented a programme of work known as the ‘6Rs’ into their curriculum.

The 6Rs have become central to our ethos at Stokes Wood Primary School. They are 6 positive learning behaviours that promote good and effective learning for life. Each R represents a characteristic that we teach, encourage and foster through our whole curriculum and as a whole school community. They underpin everything we do and are central to our belief that every child has the ability and right to learn and achieve to their full potential. Each R has its own superhero that demonstrates that learning behaviour. You will see these shown prominently throughout the school. We are proud that the children can articulate these behaviours and use them to improve their learning.
