Why are we using it?

We are using SOLE as a tool to develop and improve the skills and qualities that children require to progress on their journey as a learner. These being; curiosity, critiquing, reflecting, reasoning, imagining, discussing and observing, as well as understanding and applying existing knowledge to new situations, which can be applied in a range of contexts.

Through a whole school approach, SOLE helps develop flexible, exciting and memorable learning experiences, which support the development of a broad range of academic, social and personal skills. Learners will be more confident to ask questions in order to deepen understanding of concepts and become more capable in challenging and exploring new thinking. The shift for learners moves from ‘work’ to ‘learning and exploring’.
