Our journey back into school

Week 8 learning from home & school

Week 8

Kia Ora Whānau

This weeks learning is exploring STUDENT AGENCY

Student Agency is about our students acting on independence with their learning, by having the choice of how and what they learn in class. It is our goal as a school to create a new school normal, just as we did with creating a new normal of learning from home during COVID-19.

This week in Room 1 we are exploring what and how STUDENT AGENCY will work for us.

Student voice of this topic is as follows:

What is student agency: Taking responsibility of my learning, being accountable, independent, own choices and interest, making good choices for my learning, learning what I want to learn, learning at my own pace and it’s about me.

What do I want to learn: Measuring through science, reading and writing through art, geometry through sports, reading and writing through history, social sciences, visual art, languages (māori, tongan, samoan, cook island, hindu and more), drama, self care, inquiry, how to handle/deal with situations, easier way to do divisions and subtraction, hands-on/hard material work, SSTEAMs and that is only naming a few of what they had come up with.

How do I want to learn: On devices, using resources available at school and home, at my own pace, books, dictionaries, tools.

How will I check-in: Have a set day to check in with Whaea Tracey, through email, set up a check-in timetable, by sharing my timetable with Whaea Tracey, share my timetable with my family to keep me accountable.

With the support from our Homai whānau, Room 1 would appreciate any input into our exploration of creating our new classroom normal. Have a good week whānau  🙂
