Characteristics of Effective Learning (how we learn)
Characteristics of Effective Learning are a key element in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Through play, we are learning to become effective and motivated learners.
The three characteristics are:
Playing and exploring - finding out and exploring, playing with what they know and being willing to ‘have a go’.
Active Learning - being involved and concentrating, persevering and enjoying achieving what they set out to do.
Creating and thinking critically - having their own ideas, making links and choosing ways to do things.
