IPC PROJECT FOR THE FIRST WEEK Brainwave - The art of learning

The Big Idea

Every day we are learning lots of new and different things – gaining the knowledge, skills and understanding that we will need to become successful adults. By finding out more about how we learn, and how we can improve our learning, we will be better equipped for meeting the many challenges ahead of us.

  • We will be finding out:
    • About different methods of teaching and how we like to learn

      About some of the different areas of the brain

      How information gets into the brain

      How relaxation can help prepare us for learning

      How we can improve our memory

      How positive thinking can help us to succeed

      How we can support each other to achieve our goals

      How we can become more active global citizens

  • Children will also learn:
    • Know about some of the recent evidence and research into the brain and learning

      Know about some of the different areas of the brain and their function

      Understand the different ways that they can learn

      Understand how they can improve their learning and their attitudes to learning

      Understand the importance of cooperation and global awareness in their learning
