Our Learning Council
Rose Hill is very lucky to have a brilliant Learning Council of children who have been chosen to represent their class in discussions about what makes ‘Fantastic Learning’ in our school. They meet regularly with Miss Poyser to participate in a variety of activities which aim to allow our pupils to play an active part in improving our curriculum and learning process.
So far this year the Learning Council have been very busy working together as a team to participate in our first project ‘How We Learn’. We began the Autumn term with a visit to Marple Library, where we learnt all about how our brains work and how to learn effectively. We then did a learning walk around school to explore the exciting learning taking place and discussed the features of classroom environments that help our brains to learn. Afterwards we enjoyed having a meeting with Mrs Mastrolonardo in the board room, where we told her all about what we had found out and discussed possible ways to make learning even better.
We are currently enjoying doing an investigation into Science Learning in school and started this by conducting a pupil voice with our classes. This then led to a very interesting discussion about how our Science lessons provide opportunities for pupils to be creative and develop good enquiry skills. As part of our annual involvement with National Science Week, the Key Stage Two members of the Learning Council are excited to participating in a ‘Science Share’ with other local schools to present our ideas and explore a range of technological concepts. We look forward to updating you with our future findings!
