This video shows our second “River of Learning” session with 6SS and 6CW. The aim is made quite clear in the video. However, the main philosophy behind us investing the time and energy into trying something like this lies in the desire to help students see the value in what they do.
All too often, students come to school, do a whole load of stuff and leave with almost nothing! They don’t want to tell their parents what they’ve been doing, either because they don’t remember, don’t want to talk about it or simply are not interested enough. By Monday, the previous week has faded away into a blur of unconnected experiences of varying value to them.
All too often, Teachers blame the kids for being “disinterested” and “unengaged”. Thus demonstrating a severe misunderstanding of their job!!!
We’re trying our best to fix that. To blur the line between life and school.
