Learning Council – 11th October 2018


Learning council met on Thursday 11th October for the first time this year.

Discussion points

Welcome to Learning Council. Discussed how we can ask the members of our class about their learning ~ what they enjoy and what they could do to improve this
We took a photo of the learning council for the display board
What are our classes enjoying in their learning?

Owls

  • Maths lessons ~ we enjoy when the teacher does an example, we do one together and then we do one on our own
  • English
  • Topic ~ learning about evacuation and imagining what it was like. Writing diary entries as if we are an evacuee
  • Art ~ creating abstract art
  • Science ~ doing practical investigations and learning about forces

Badgers

  • English ~ finding out about Pompeii and volcanoes, lots of us are interested in volcanoes
  • Handwriting ~ we are practising and getting better and better
  • Exciting writing ~ we like when we are given a picture and we write a story about it, we get to be creative
  • Art

Squirrels

  • Maths ~ we like doing the part-part whole with pictures and things. It helps us to understand the numbers
  • PE ~ we like doing lots of PE, it’s fun!

Anything to raise?

Can we have more practise with calculations and times tables?

Actions

Ask teachers to include more calculation practise and times table practise in their maths meetings ~ Year 5 children to write a letter to ask?
The two oldest children volunteered to take turns to take notes during the learning council meetings
