Characteristics effective learning .

Recommended Posts

Please can some of you give me ideas of how you record these into the child's learning journey. At the moment we use this sheet to highlight them. But I feel we need to do more as it don't have positive relationships or enabling environments.

Why do you need to do more , it's up to you to provide the enabling environment and therefore this would help you to see how children access and use it and as for positive relationships , this is part of your observation and provision.

IMO .

Also if you do not have the enabling environment and the positive relationships in place, you will not observe the characteristics of learning - it wont happen! Isn't that your continuous provision?

Just that we use that within our learning journeys whe doing observations, but the ofsted inspected made a comment that we could possible make more use of the Characteristics of learning a bit more within our learning journeys to show where the child is. But don't know of any way of improving on what we already do.

Maybe it was a case of the inspector trying to find something to work on as you got outstanding again??? Do you feel that your current system needs changing?

No I don't feel it need changing. I think we do above the normal already.

Maybe we could add the CoEL to some of the photo shots.

Have a feeling lsp is right. However...

We found this on twinkl which gives space to jot down examples.

Wouldn't usually use something lke this but we have a moderation visit this year and so we're using it as a memory jogger in case anyone's mind goes blank at the crucial moment!

Thank you for that. I think as we already do it on our obs we could possible use this for the photo shot.

My last setting used coloured sticky dots on the observations. Each CoEL had a different colour (red, yellow and blue) and if the observation covered that CoEL, it had the corresponding sticky dot on it. There was also a sheet at the front that explained this to parents.

I don't think it's just a matter of having to find a CoEL and tick it off for each obvs.. Maybe Ofsted actually want settings to show how best a child learns, and the actual point of the CoEL in the first place. So in future activities once we have established that Paul needs encouraging to "try again" in order to maximise the outcome from an activity, was this then put into practice and also did you document this in Paul's Journal?

 

This would be then using the CoEL effectively after all :ph34r:
