Each Friday, teams of students take it in turns to teach the class something. Lessons can be about anything but must teach the class a skill of some kind. Instead of the normal weekly homework, the team of ‘Student Teachers’ fill out a lesson plan. The lesson plan has a whole class focus, independent task and finishes with a reflection and summary – just like our other sessions!
This week was the first week our ‘Student Teachers’ ran a session. The girls taught us how to make special cards. In the whole class focus we revised why we write cards and brainstormed possible messages to put in them. In the independent learning time we could make a card to anyone we chose.
We wonder what we will learn next. Will it be a new sporting skill? Maybe it will be how to use a new website? Or, another art based session? Whatever it is, we can’t wait!
What would you teach us if you were the teacher?
