Accepting responsibility

I think before I do something and I accept the consequences of things that I say or do.

Respecting others

I accept that everyone has their own ideas and beliefs and I listen to them carefully and try to understand.


I think about how I can work well with others so that we all reach our goals. I don’t try and take over or make decisions for others.

Resolving conflict

When an argument comes up, I try to find ways to stop it.

Group decision-making

I listen to everyone’s opinion when making a group decision. I accept that the group decision may not be the one I wanted. I understand that groups need to stick to their collective decision to work well.

Adopting a variety of group roles

I do different jobs in the group each time: reporter, recorder, time-keeper, manager, illustrator,...

Formulating questions

I use factual questions, conceptual questions and provocative questions.


I decide what I need to look at in order to understand and I make notes.


I think about what I need to do and how I am going to do it.

Collecting data

I find useful information in different places.

Recording data

I write down, draw or record the information I have collected.

Organising data

I group together information which fits together in themes.

Interpreting data

I think about what the information means for my question.

Presenting research findings

I choose the best ways to present my research and findings to my audience.

Acquisition of knowledge

I find things out.


I make sure I understand the things I find out.


I use the information I found out to make or do something.


I look for the themes or big ideas in the information I found.


I use lots of different kinds of information from different sources to help me understand. I use this understanding to make or do something.


I decide whether the information I have found is useful for my question.

Dialectical thought

I think about the contradictions between pieces of information


I understand how I learn best.


I listen to other people, to songs, to speeches and to myself.


I talk clearly and respectfully to other people. I am easy to understand and use language my audience can understand.


I read all kinds of books, posters and advertisements. I choose books that are appropriate for me and my subject.


I write many different kinds of texts (stories, reports, poems, adverts...) that are aimed at my audience.


I look at films and artwork and think about what they are trying to teach me.


I share my ideas and learning with others in a clear, easy to understand and appropriate manner.

Non-verbal communication

I use body language to communicate with others. I am always careful not to use offensive body language.

Gross motor skills

I can run, jump, stop and turn and use my body effectively.

Fine motor skills

I can control my body in little movements, e.g. cutting out, neat handwriting, tying shoe laces.

Spatial awareness

I know where I am in relation to others and the world around me.


I make sure I have the things I need to work or play. I know where my stuff is and keep my things tidy and easy to find quickly.

Time management

I use my time sensibly so that I get my work done on time. I think about what it is important for me to do first and spend the most time on.


I act in a safe manner for myself and others at all times.

Healthy lifestyle

I respect my body and mind. I make sure that I have a balanced lifestyle and diet.

Codes of behaviour

I act appropriately at all times. I respect other people’s feelings and situations.

Informed choices

I make decisions by thinking about the advantages and consequences. I listen to others’ advice but I make my own choices about how I act.
