Deliberate Practice Target
Sky Maths Class (Y6) have been introduced to this pictorial idea of viewing their learning experience at any one point in the lesson. With the diagram’s help, they have been able to recognise and talk about how they feel about their learning experience, and therefore take action themselves to move their learning on.
They recognise that ideally they need to be in the yellow Learning Zone to maximise the learning opportunities and outcomes. There will be times that they cross over into the Comfort Zone (central green area) or the Panic Zone (outer red area). However, once recognising this, they feel more empowered to do something about it (i.e. take on more or less challenging ideas). This supports Growth Mindset and the idea that Learners take more responsibility for their own learning.
