Celebrating Inquiry in 1/2ST


Posted by reneetimion | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on March 23, 2016

Today students from 1/2ST had an opportunity to celebrate their learning from their individual inquiries. Students chose and researched a question of interest to them relating to ‘Our Environment’. Some questions consisted of things such as:

  • How do we attract more butterflies to our garden?
  • Where is Bell Primary School located in the world?
  • What are the best conditions for four leaf clovers to grow?
  • Why can’t we have pets at school?
  • Why was the third floor shut?
  • Why can’t we have icy-poles at school?
  • Why can’t we have a water slide at school?
  • Are there any minerals in the school?

We all chose different ways to ‘find out’ during the process. Some people wrote letters to experts, used surveys, books and the internet, and tested and trialled various experiments. We then chose different ways to display our learning. For example, new signs for the school, dioramas, booklets, butterfly houses, posters, digital artworks and even a persuasive written proposal to Ms. Pearce!

Take a look at some of our wonderful learning!
