Whilst looking round a school last year I came across the idea of a ‘learning wall’ where children could write questions and ideas about any topic that they are studying. The only thing that I didn’t like about it was the fact that it looked rather messy in the classroom – that’s the controling teacher in me!
In class this week I set up a wall all about our next topic – Dinosaurs. The exercise worked really well and th children came up with loads of questions.
The next step is to get them to create webpages to answer their questions and then link them to the questions on the wall. I’m looking forward to see if it all works out.
