What's happening to our school? Holes and Rooms.

In my last blog I shared that we were aiming to promote reflective thinking more and more in our school this year using cooperative learning, BIG QUESTIONS and MAKING THINKING VISIBLE.

I took the opportunity this week to promote such thinking using a hole that appeared on one of the walls in our corridor.

I asked the BIG QUESTION: What is happening behind this hole? (I asked children to be creative in their thinking process.)

And provided the VISIBLE THINKING TOOL of the Explaining Game to guide/support their thinking.

Check out their thinking next time you visit us.

This week we also saw our Middle Years challenging their potential by being taught Art by a specialist (Juf Miriam) in our new Multi-Purpose Room (Thanks Facilities!).
