All children are unique. They learn, think and develop in different ways and at varying pace. Unfortunately, teachers cannot always respond to these individual differences, especially in large classrooms, leaving many children with anxiety and feelings of shame and low self esteem. This gravely negatively impacts a child’s capacity to learn, reinforcing itself throughout their academic pathway. The good news is that these barriers to learning can be identified and overcome. Developed by Light Education Training, What Happens At The Point Of Not Understanding (WHATPONU) is a ground-breaking programme, delivered through a series of six core lessons, that helps children approach learning with a positive and open attitude.
The Lars Windhorst Foundation has generously contributed to the delivery of WHATPONU amongst primary schools in the UK. Working in collaboration with teachers, these skills and communication methods are reinforced on a daily basis and have demonstrated improved levels of attainment and wellbeing among students.
WHATPONU equips children with tools to embrace positive healthy learning that will be carried throughout their academic pathway.
