In Year 1, students worked together to create their very own zoos. They worked together to describe where the animals should go in their zoos and some even gave reasons as to why those animals should be placed where they were to convince their fellow classmates about their choices.
Year 2 students worked together to create a class song about our topic, My Bedroom, and sang it together using the backing track from the original song. They worked together in small groups to create different verses of the song before coming back together to sing it, giving them the chance to share their verses with the rest of the class.
Students in Year 4 are wrapping up their Mythical Beasts topic with several pieces of writing aimed at recapping the language and grammar learned during the topic. As with everything, collaboration and the sharing of ideas plays a very important role in their learning. Students shared and magpied ideas from one another to further improve their own writing styles.
Teamwork makes the dream work! After all, you need many logs to make a bonfire, not just one. Alone we smolder, together we blaze.
