Where is my place in the world?

Hello,

 

The children in Class Beck have been working very hard to complete their previous enquiry into the key questions: What makes a principled leader? How and why are people treated differently? We are now at the final stage of this enquiry where we will be working in collaborative enquiry groups to present our information as a final outcome. The children all decided that they wanted to create an information resource for other children in school, in other schools and around the world about the key individuals we have enquired into. They will be using everything that they have learned so far to create these final outcomes which will take the form of videos, booklets, posters, songs and leaflets. We will then evaluate our learning and consider which learner characteristics have been developed during this enquiry.

Expressing Ourselves

Hello,

We have had a very busy time in Class Beck since our last update and we have a huge amount to share with you all.

We have completed our All About Me enquiry and our now at the initial stage of wondering for our new enquiry based on the overarching theme of Expressing Ourselves. As part of stage 2 of our enquiry we were very lucky to have two visitors in Mr Caddy and Mrs Methven, who very kindly came to be interviewed by the class about their jobs and the world of work in general. The children thoroughly enjoyed these opportunities and it helped to answer a lot of questions as part of the enquiry.

What important jobs are there and how do you get them? How do you achieve your goals?

In Class Beck, we have continued our enquiry linked to the over arching theme of ‘All About Me’. We completed our wondering and following this, we had a class discussion on which questions would be most suitable to enquire into. We considered which questions could be looked at individually during iTime and we also talked about which enquiries we had completed in previous classes. Following these discussions we decided to focus on the following enquiry questions: ‘What important jobs are there and how do you get them?’ and ‘How do you achieve your goals?’

We recorded what we know already about this area and also questions we would like to answer. We will revisit these at the end of our enquiry and update them with what we have learned. At this stage, we also planned how we are going to ‘land’ our enquiry and we decided that we would research different important jobs so that we could create our own Class Beck Job Fair. We have now moved on to Stage 2 which involved exploring key questions and finding out.
