Year 6 Share Their Learning About The Importance of Water

25 March 2015

Year 6 have recently been considering the essential question: “Is water our most valuable resource?” Year 6 teacher Mark Wilson explains…

Over the past few weeks, each class in Year 6 was tasked with investigating a particular aspect of the importance of water, with the project culminating in our Learning Showcase.

Classes created a variety of products and outcomes, ranging from a ‘Poseidon – Guardians of Water’ campaign to a gallery of water crisis videos (now available on YouTube). There was a showcase about water pollution, another investigating the importance of water following a natural disaster and a booklet of infographics detailing water facts.

Pupils directed their learning, having responsibility for the quality of their work and were challenged to be highly creative in the work they produced. Teachers facilitated this process, encouraging collaborative work throughout the project.

Around 60 parents attended the Learning Showcase, and each Year 6 class received a great deal of positive feedback about their work. Children are already looking forward to their next opportunity to share their learning!
