Learning and Life Skills


We aim to teach children the skills, knowledge and habits to be successful learners both now and in their future experiences as life-long learners. Edison Learning and Life Skills can benefit any learner, teacher, and school. Learning and Life Skills provides schools with a way to deliver effective provision for pupils' personal development, behaviour and welfare and supports moral, social and cultural development.

The Edison Learning and Life Skills are a coherent set of Learning Units designed to ensure learners learn effectively and are equipped for lifelong learning, no matter their Key Stage, or their age.

Central to the Learning and Life Skills approach is the involvement of pupils in exploring their understanding of and assessing their own progress against explicit criteria - the 'I can' statements, and doing this across all year groups.

At Darlinghurst our six learning units are

· Autumn 1 - Learning together

· Autumn 2 - It's up to me!

· Spring 1 - Becoming a Better Learner

· Spring 2 - Knowing me, Knowing you

· Summer 1 - Think, Think, Think!

· Summer 2 - Speaking and Listening
