I thought I would try something new with my class this year. Well, there are lots of new things: new room, new year, new class, new assessment... the list goes on.
Specifically, I am trying out a 'reporters' book' . The plan is that in each science lesson, one group is responsible for recording the learning that is happening. The group has a camera and the children are not expected to double up on their work, but to record what's been learnt.
Next step maybe to try in other subjects, maths would be my next move.
The point? A record, a revision tool, a discussion point, a way for me to assess understanding .
Will it be useful? Raise standards? Improve understanding? I hope so. Watch this space...
