Every day is a learning day! We had a busy staff development session this week.
Mrs McDonald led us all as we looked at how French and German are being taught in school – we looked at the feedback from our pupils too and all the teachers made a plan for their class!
Working together, we looked at how we plan for learning and teaching. We shared good ideas and asked questions of each other to improve experiences for our learners. We used the Connect, Extend,Challenge thinking routine.
We used Chalk Talk to explore the ELC Pedagogy Placemats – we asked ourselves how do they match our practice and ethos in school? What can we learn from them?
After a exciting return to school in August, the children have been continuing to work hard to develop their learning powers. Here are some of our Learning Heroes so far this year. Please now keep up to date weekly on our school Twitter page @EastLintonPS! :0)
Our first Pupil Focus group used the Think, Puzzle, Explore thinking routine to make some plans for our playground – some fantastic ideas!
Working together as a team – discussing techniques to assess progress – what , how, when, how much and why? Excellent professional dialogue at our staff session yesterday evening.
