Our Five Words

At Rose Green Infant School, we are constantly reflecting upon our provision and practice and looking at how we can make changes to further enhance the learning experiences of the children and improve their outcomes.


In 2023, all teaching staff worked on developing a new curriculum.  We hope that this curriculum will excite and inspire your children.  Details of this can be found on our school website.  Underpinning the curriculum is a progression of knowledge, skills and understanding in each area of learning, which ensures there is smooth progression right from when our children arrive at the start of Reception, to the end of Year 2, for all areas of learning. 


Linked to this new curriculum, we have thought a great deal about the characteristics of learning that we would like all the children in our school to understand and be trying to achieve by the end of Year 2, as a good foundation for the next steps in their learning journey.  After much discussion, we agreed on the following five words:


Responsible        Resilient          Motivated      Independent      Creative


We have colour coded them for the visual learners among us and for each word, attached an animal, again to help us remember the name of the quality and what that looks like in the classroom.  This information is included on the presentation which can be found below, so you can hopefully talk with your children about the words at home.
