The Six Rs

The 6Rs are integral to all that we do at Woore.  They help children to talk about their learning and to know how to behave.  We talk about them in lessons and assemblies on a daily basis. We cover one of the 6Rs per half term in school and this will be communicated to parents through regular newsletters.  If you can use these same words at home, you will help your child to understand them and will show that home and school are working together as a team.

Here is a reminder of what the 6Rs are, what we teach that they mean, and some examples of how you could use them in an everyday situation.


Responsibility   Behaving sensibly, caring for surroundings and other people, following rules.

Home examples: “Well done for tidying up your toys!  That was very responsible of you!”

“That was kind of you to share with your little brother.  How responsible you are!”


Resilience      Being able to cope when things go wrong, putting a brave face on things, trying again.

Home examples: “Don’t give up ! Keep trying and it will get easier!  Be resilient!”

“Aren’t you brave, not making a fuss when you fell over just then!  How resilient you are!”


Reasoning   Thinking things through, making logical decisions

Home examples:  “Are you really going to eat ALL of those sweets?  Do you think that’s a good idea?  Why do you think that?  Well done for good reasoning!”

“You’ve asked me why I am doing this.  Why do YOU think?  Try to think of the reason.”


Reflection   Thinking carefully about other people’s feelings, or about what would happen if… or what could have been done differently.

Home examples: “I know you want to play with that, but look how sad your little sister is.  Can you be really reflective and share this time?”

“How do you think she feels now that you have hit her?  What should you have done instead?  Well done, that is kinder and more reflective.”

“Oh dear, you feel sick after all of those sweets. What do you think you should have done instead? Let’s remember this next time and be reflective.”


Resourcefulness   Finding new solutions to problems, making own decisions

 Home examples: “Oh dear, is a piece missing?  What can we do to sort that? Let’s think of a new way to play with it, and be resourceful.”

“I know that you wanted to play in the garden with your friend but it is pouring with rain.  What games could you both play inside instead?  That is being really resourceful.”


Respect   Listening to and learning from other people with politeness, following rules and caring for people and property.

Home examples: “Thank you for doing what I asked straight away.  That is showing really good respect.”

“Be sure to look after that new toy because we don’t want it to get broken.  We need to treat it with respect
