Next week students will be issued a trust license. We have co-constructed what this will look like with the students. We have three levels of license - learner - restricted - full. With each license, students are given different permissions around the learning common and school. Students have identified which license they feel they should be awarded and together with their LA's, these will be given out next week.
We are well underway with our class projects. All students are working in a group and will be finished in the next couple of weeks. We will send out details closer to the time for you to come and see the process they have undertaken and the finished products.
Most Literacy groups are going to be focussing on persuasive language for both reading and writing. Be prepared for some persuasive conversations coming your way!
Lights Out...Power Out!
On Wednesday the world nearly ended, the power went out in the school. No internet, no air conditioner. Horrible I know, but in our hours of dire need a teacher/hero rose and made us do school work that didn’t require power. Amy (the Hero) got us try and sell a product written on a piece of paper which was really fun. Next, she got us choose a side so we could debate it, also really fun. Finally, we got into teams and were given a side and a debate, we had 20 mins to write a debate and debated our point against another team. All and all Wednesday was great and I hope it happens again.
