Rocket Learners

What is Rocket Learners:

Rocket Learners is a programme designed to encourage and acknowledge the learning that takes place beyond the classroom. This is based on the belief that learning is not always academically bound and can involve other areas such as:

  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design
  • Social relationships

The programme encourages children to participate in activities to develop skills to help themseleves, those at home and the community. Children will log hours for time spent engaging in activities with the opportunity to earn awards dependent on hours accumulated. The programme enables children to learn new skills, extend their learning potential and develop a growth mindset.

How it works:

Children can choose activities that help them develop skills for themselves, the community and for those at home. They will each get their own Rocket Learners Manual where they can log hours for time spent participating in activities of their choosing. The logged hours will be signed off by a parent, teacher or community member to approve the hours. 

Rocket Learners Awards:

The Moon Landing – 50 hours

The Shooting Star – 100 hours

Search the Solar System – 150 hours

Groovy Galaxy – 200 hours

Children must try to engage in activities for at least 10 hours in each of the following; the self, the community and at home.  

Ideas for activities can be found at the back of the Rocket Learners Manual
