I am moving on from my fete debacle and trying to focus on something positive.

Does anyone out there know anything about Learning to Learn? In particular, how it might be used/introduced in an infant or primary school? I have volunteered (why do I always do this?) to look into it and am not really sure where to start.

So far, I understand that it is about teaching children how to learn rather than just giving them information – I guess that it takes the emphasis off the teacher standing at the class and instructing. But, whilst I can see how I would have applied it in my classes as a secondary school teacher, I am not sure how it applies to younger children.

Do schools have packages that they teach, or is it something that teachers introduce as they are teaching? Do schools formalise it, or is it left to the individual teacher?

I would love to hear of any other schools experiences of this.

Many thanks
