The 6Rs

6Rs assembly

We celebrated 102 successes in our 6Rs project at our final Christmas assembly. It was lovely to see so many parents, carers, grandparents and friends at the assembly. Year 3 entertained us with Christmas songs, there were other awards,carols and of course the Christmas story with its message of love, kindness and respect for all.

 6Rs video

The school council had a marvellous opportunity this week when they made a film to promote our new 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 have recently decided to implement a programme of work known as the ‘6Rs’ into their curriculum.

The 6Rs are becoming 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.
