Learning w/b 04th December

This week the children shared their home learning projects with the class. I was so impressed at the effort and hard work that went into this particular learning. We talked about the process and how the children had approached the task. I asked the children to identify what they had discovered about themselves as learners from this project, some mentioned that they noticed that they prefered working with others, others talked about their time management and that because the task was spread over several weeks they had to make sure they completed some learning regularly and the repercussions of not doing so.
