Special Visit

The Summer Learning Journey for NEXT Foundation from Next Foundation on Vimeo.
Today Panmure Bridge School had a special assembly. We were lucky to have Rachel announce the Summer/Winter Learning Journey for 2017-2018. Rachel was followed by the Woolf Fisher Research Centre and the NEXT Foundation. Our Head Boy (AJ) and Head Girl (Mia) introduced themselves to the visitors.  

Christmas around the world

The Collaborative challenge was fun. In my group was Javeylor, Fatongia and Carl. Our first activity was to pick a country to make a DLO about how they celebrate Christmas. We chose the Philippines because Carl was also Philippine and we didn't really know about how the Filipinos celebrate Christmas. Then we made a screencastify to tell whats happening and to show and tell our thinking. After making this presentation we learnt a lot. Our next task was to create a Kahoot about different country's. We used our smart searching skills to get this task done and we also worked as a team well. This made it easier to finish off our task. This was for Inquiry beacuse we were also learning about Christmas

how children learn at school

How Children Learn At School

Children have lots of different way of learning. They are really curious. Learning is really important for children because it helps the gain knowledge. One way children learn is by asking questions. They also give feedback and ask for feed forward.

When they ask for feed forward they get learn new things which could help them in different areas of learning. Children often watch role models and copy what they do.

When children are unsure of what to do they either listen to others carefully or watch others do. They can also search it up on the internet.

When children reflect about their learning they can see where they have gone wrong and what they have to improve on. They take risks to learn new things and get a new experience.

Children have lots of different ways to learn at school. They are really curious. Learning is a really important part of a children's time at school because it helps the gain knowledge and helps them build confidence in learning.

For this task we were working in partners to write an explanation. I worked with Aj. We then showed another pair our explanation and they gave us feedback and feed forward. Our feedback wast that we have great ideas and our writing is well layed out. Our feed forward was that we should try not to repeat things.

Fatongia's Suggestion was we could have more bins at school, Jay-Don's suggestion was we could start putting up signs saying no littering and we should have bins in each class rooms.
