Learning Journey

Our Learning Journey shows us WHAT, WHEN and WHERE.
The progression of skills and the knowledge we share.
We always BLINK first so that Everyone Grows,
We start with WHY as the journey unfolds.
Behaviour for Learning, teacher instruction,
Key Knowledge and skills to help us all function!
So remember your Passport and Boarding Pass too,
Become Worldly Wise, be honest and true.


Please watch the the short videos below and all will become clear!

Quality of Teaching and Learning

Click on the Links below to understand how we monitor and evaluate the quality of teaching and learning throughout the Ardleigh Green Learning Federation.

As a school community we are committed to “Working together, Learning Together and Growing Together,” in order for us all to be equipped to be lifelong learners in the technological age in which we live.

Our teaching focuses on our children developing a thirst for knowledge and understanding, through the teaching and development of key learning skills.These skills underpin teaching and learning and are designed to equip our children to be resourceful, resilient, reflective and responsible learners.

The 5 R’s of Learning

Do you know the 5R’s of Ardleigh Green, displayed in the hall for all to see. There are 5 R words for you to see on the walls of Ardleigh Green. Because we are ready and responsible, resourceful and resilient, reflective and prepared for any change.

The Ardleigh Green 5R’s Song


Being prepared to learn, ask questions and adapt to new learning situations.


Sticking at tasks even when they become difficult and using a range of strategies to overcome a problem.


Being ready, willing and able to learn in different ways. Being prepared to take risks even if there is a  possibility of failiure.


Being able to think and talk about what has been learnt and how it has been learnt.


Being prepared to work individually and within a group understanding personal targets and how to achieve them.

Learning is an innate ability in all of us, just like running. In the same way that we can learn to become faster runners we can also learn to become better learners. The 5 R’s of learning are behaviours that can be isolated, practices and improved. By focussing on and improving individual learning behaviours, the learners can learn more effectively.

Promoting Learning Behaviours

Explaining:        What they value and discuss with their children.
Commenting:    How they talk to children about their learning and achievements.
Orchestrating:  The activities they select.
Modelling:         What they themselves model about learning.

Supporting and Encouraging
