Learning the BLP way
Lifelong learning and the promotion and development of independent learners is a key objective for all schools. One of the major developments recently for our school as been the introduction of Professor Guy Claxton's work on Building Learning Power (BLP). Guy Claxton's work suggests that there are four key learning dispositions - Resilience, Resourcfulness, Reflectiveness and Reciprocity, - the new four Rs of learning. These learning dispositions are not fixed and like our muscular system, they can be trained to become more efficient.
 
We have used BLP to develop all stakeholder's language within our school. We have developed what we term ' The Language for Learning' in school and for the first time we can all engage in a dialogue using a common language to support and develop our understanding of how we learn. This initiative has transformed our children's ability to self-evaluate and target areas for development in their own learning.
 
We soon realised that BLP and learning logs went together likes bees and honey. Children are able to illustrate their learning and their ability to learn in a variety of styles. They use the language for learning to explain ways in which they achieved or approached tasks and how they can move on to the next chapter in their learning.

I use my collaboration learning muscles with my mum and dad.  I used my perseverance learning muscle because I found it a bit difficult, but I carried on and done it.  Then my mum and dad were talking in the background but I managed my distractions.  I enjoy doing my learning log and I put lots of colour into it  and put lots of hard work into it as well.

 

I can collaborate with my mum and dad and other people when doing my learning log.  I had fun when I was doing work about landscapes.  I did some capitalising with cardboard, pens and sellotape.Skye Year 3

 

     

I enjoy doing my learning log and I persevere with it because sometimes I find it hard, but when I give it to my teacher she tells me that I have done really well.  Itís really fun and we can stick things in, go on the internet and use the Argos catalogue.  We also draw things and write things.

I enjoy doing my learning log, my mum and dad help me all the time, I use my imagining learning muscles and I imagine how I could set it out. 

 

I like my learning log and I think it is the best in the world.  I need to plan things because I need to put stuff in the right place, I have to manage distractions when I am doing my learning log as my baby sister sometimes cries.

I persevere with my learning log and sometimes I collaborate with my sister who also has a learning log.  I plan where to put things in my learning log.  I really liked the story of Joseph that I put in my learning log.  It was fab.
