Elmdale Early Years School
A highlight for me this month has been watching our Grade 1 classes host their class exhibitions. This has been fantastic to watch in action. The Grade 1 students were so proud of the work they had done and craving to show off their Winter Olympics Inquiry Unit to the rest of the students in our school.
Students watching were very engaged to see what a Grade 1 inquiry unit looks like. From the perspective of the teachers presenting, it was a great opportunity to show their colleagues the work that they are exploring in Grade 1. From the perspective of the teachers watching the exhibition, they were able to glean some ideas that they can take back to their class when leading their next inquiry unit.
The exhibitions also provided an opportunity for parents to see the learning that took place in their child's classroom. Students captured videos and showed their exhibition creations which brought parents closer to understanding the learning journey that their child experienced.
I look forward to watching the remaining grades share their exhibitions!
