What does a good learner do?
Super Hero Learners (as we like to call them) are ready to learn, listen, ask questions, take a risk and don’t give up even when learning is tricky.
It is hard to believe that the first semester is nearly over for this school year. As the newcomer to VVA I have loved this time of getting to know the children and the wider school family.
First Grade has lived up to their reputation of being a great bunch of children! They love learning about anything and everything and can be heard talking and sharing with others, even over lunch eating! “Did you know you’re eating a seed” says Jonathan after learning that corn and peas are seeds during our plant study.
The children enjoyed our Science focus on the Earth earlier this semester. We learnt about different landforms and created fantastic paper models. We also got to explore rocks, different types of soil and found out how and what effect there is when land changes through erosion and weathering.
One of the most important questions we have talked about in First Grade this semester is, ‘what does a good learner do?’ Super Hero Learners (as we like to call them) are ready to learn, listen, ask questions, take a risk and don’t give up even when learning is tricky. We try really hard to put these into practice and what great character traits to learn now as we know we never stop learning!
