Being Knowledgeable

What do you think when you look at this image?

Image result for knowledgeable image watering brain

This week, we used this image to prompt a discussion around being knowledgeable, which is one of the aspects of our learner profile.

We had lots of great ideas about what the picture represented, but in the end the class decided that new knowledge helps our brain grow and get stronger. We also noticed that the brains in the picture are different sizes. The children were confident that if you want your brain to get bigger, you can make it! You just need to read lots of books and ask lots of questions.

We also noticed the hand holding the watering can. Some children thought that it might be a teacher holding the watering can, pouring knowledge into student's brains. Other children thought they could hold the watering can for themselves and each other. What a great discussion!

Kids Vote 2017

On Friday, Room 1 used the 'Kids Vote 2017' resources and set up the class to show the election process. They organised the afternoon by themselves and certainly showed how knowledgeable they have become throughout this UOI into how we organise ourselves.

Here are Zach and Luke, showing you around the classroom and explaining the election process:
