Welcome back Primary 7!
You all looked so smart in your red hoodies today, what a fabulous start to, what I am sure will be, an amazing year for you all.
As discussed, there is no homework this week other than house captain speeches which we will begin to write in class at the end of this week. These will be due in at the end of next week.
When you enter our classroom you will intermediately notice that it is like no other because it was designed, after a lot of research, by P7 last year. It promotes high level learning, rich collaboration, student centered and active learning. This fortnight we are trying out different learning areas to suit learning styles and hopefully you will learn more and more about how your learning environment can help or hinder learning. Today we worked outside, on the floor, in groups, in ICT and in the noisy hall today and you were all able to reflect on these environments really well. The respect that you showed to some of the “funky furniture” was great – well done! We will begin to explore all the flexible seating options every day, please trust and bear with me because I know you will not only love your new space, but overtime you will also understand why it is how it is and be able to change things and make adaptations.
I put together a Welcome back newsletter HERE in a PDF for you to have a look at and once I have edited your DAY 1 PHOTOS i will put them below 🙂
