Across our academy we use Solar School Characters to help our children develop different learning skills. These learning skills are organised into different 'families':
The characters are displayed around the academy and are often part of the Working Walls within the classrooms. In each child's Individual Provision Maps and annual report to parents, the ACRO skills and Solar Schools characters are referred to. The certificates that are awarded in our weekly celebration assembly also use the different families and learning skills.
We have found that using these learning skills helps children to develop strategies for independent and collaborative learning.
Below is a document containing information about all of the different characters, which we hope you will find useful.
