Oor Learning

Over the past four years we have been working very hard at Roslin Primary to improve our learning and teaching practice. We have worked as a school community in order for both teachers and pupils to become better learners, which we know has a huge impact on positive mental and physical health. One of the most significant and powerful pieces of work we have embraced has been that of the growth mindset – the belief that brains and talent are only a starting point and that hard work and dedication can develop our basic abilities. This Oor Wullie design shows the brain as a starting point for growth. The branches of ideas, learning and ‘lightbulb moments’ that extend from it demonstrate this learner’s understanding of what we have nurtured and encouraged at Roslin. We want all of our learners to believe that through their own hard work, anything is possible!
