Mr William Bohanna, Senior Teacher (Teaching & Learning)
We held the first ‘Brain Breakfast’ of the academic year on Tuesday 9 November for some of our Year 10 students. The event aims to support students to reflect on their recent learning experiences and discuss active ways to improve their learning skills and academic performance.
The students were joined at breakfast by teachers from Woldingham’s Teaching and Learning Committee, who are trained coaches. Discussion focused on working smarter not harder, taking a coaching approach to support the students to unlock their own potential and optimise their own performance. This included asking them to consider questions in relation to their work and academic performance, such as: What is important to you? What is stopping you? What do you want?
The session was extremely productive and we will hold more Brain Breakfasts through the academic year.
