Gem Powers - Learning to Learn

Promoting positive learning attitudes and behaviours

In every class our children use their 'Gem Powers' to become better learners. These were devised by Dr. Tom Robson and each one promotes a positive attitude and behaviour; we currently focus on four:

Diamond - Finding ways to solve our problems

Emerald - Persevering to achieve a challenge

Ruby - Being supportive of others

Sapphire - Staying focused and avoiding distractions
