Today I went solo, probably prematurely, as i haven’t quite managed to read past the first few chapters of my new book,but I was so excited, and my ‘snow lesson’ ( despite Edinburgh being the last place in the UK NOT to be snowy) leant itself so well.

So rather than the research and present content,( rather shallow learning) we researched, put ideas, information and learnt concepts into hexagons and connected our thoughts, and then presented our learning. ( probably nothing approaching abstract relational, but nevertheless deeper learning than it would have been.

I enjoyed my role as Devils Advocate, questioning children’s ideas and concepts, forcing them to re jig and reconnect and rearrange . Other children picked up on this role too, so that when sent to question other groups they were quick to try and spot links and connections that they thought the others had missed. All in all, a fun and constructive 2 hours for my class, the test will be tomorrow when I ask the what they gave learnt!
