Learning Council Trip to the Natural History Museum
This year the Learning Council went on a trip to the Natural History Museum. We went on the tube all the way to South Kensington and spent the day finding out about dinosaurs and animals.
The children enjoyed a talk about animal vision in the Attenborough Studio and some of the council were lucky enough to experience touching the animals including a giant python! They loved being dinosaur hunters and for some children, experiencing the sounds of the giant robotic T-rex was very exciting. The children behaved beautifully and had a great day.
The new mural
The Learning Council helped created the new mural in the Infant Playground.
The Council have come up with a list of 10 things that make a good lesson from a pupil’s point of view.
They have made a list of good learning behaviour. They have observed learning in classrooms.
They have interviewed children about how as a school Holly Park could encourage children to read more.
They have made posters to encourage reading.
