Fearless Fridays

Following the staff INSET on bringing an element of fearlessness into classroom practice, lessons have been amended to try out new ideas and techniques such as allowing the pupils to draw out maths formulae on wipe-down desks to work through equations, using Virtual Reality headsets to transport a Geography class and getting the girls to sing conjugations in French to the tune of the Pink Panther.

Students had to learn the pattern of irregular verbs, according to their preferred learning style. Some of them realised that they may have wrongly selected their learning style or that they preferred two not just one way of learning. In the end some acted out the conjugation of verbs, some chanted it, some made some shapes where they wrote the various words to form the conjugations and some listened out and repeated. They all learnt in their chosen way …and had fun
