Thinking School

Amesbury Archer Primary School has been working towards becoming a ‘Thinking School’ over the past three years. This means that we are explicitly teaching children about how we learn best and our aim is to provide the children with the tools needed to be successful, lifelong learners.

The latest initiative and part of this journey includes a focus on Habits of Mind. These 16 habits are what successful learners do. These habits will be introduced to the children over the next few years and we will focus on a different habit each term.


Term 1: Persisting

Term 2: Listening with understanding and empathy

Term 3: Applying past knowledge to new situations

Term 4: Striving for accuracy

Term 5: Questioning and problem posing

Term 6: Thinking interdependently
