Thank you to the parents who participated in last Thursday’s Learning walk. As part of the learning walk, we talked about what education was for them. We then engaged in the learning walk through the years 5/6 learning area.
Parents had 3 questions in mind as they experienced the classrooms.
1. What did you see?
2. What did you think/feel?
3. What are you wondering?
What did you see?
Group work, students working together, a variety of activities not all doing the same, children engaged, children knew what they were doing and could organise themselves, loved the visuals in the classrooms, focus groups with the teacher.
What did you think/feel/wonder?
Children comfortable, content and engaged, confident children, good communication skills – were able to engage with the parents when they walked around, really organised, children weren’t distracted when people moved through the classrooms. Were very impressed with the SMART spelling approach and have been enjoying the Seesaw posts.
