During our violin lesson we persevered to play the violin, as we were finding it difficult to get our fast fingers right. We also used revising, as some of us had to revise which fingers we were using for each note. We used our listening skills to listen carefully to Mr Jones’ instructions and our collaborative learning muscle to play together as a class. But most of all we were absorbed in our exciting learning.
4W made laurel wreaths for our assembly. We had to work collaboratively together to measure each other’s heads so that we got the head band the correct size. We then had to manage our distractions and persevere to stick the leaves on to the head band.
“We used our own opinion in groups. Our task was to order items according to how important they would be if we were stranded in a desert. This task involved us using Dolly the Dolphin and taught us about reciprocity.” Faith 4B
“We used collaboration to work as a team, to see which items are most important and least important. We used our listening skills to see what to do and what not to do.” Ben
