Year 3 Sound Fair

It was wonderful to see how our pupils assumed responsibility for their learning and showcased what they understood about sound and its role in our lives. This was a student-led initiative and the teachers were merely facilitators. We started with the musical ensemble in the hall and then the students moved to their respective groups.

The different ways the children shared their learning demonstrated the various ways they engaged with the curriculum. They were able to express their learning in a way that was most effective for each of them.

Well done Year 3 and we are so proud of you!
