We have classroom learning spaces. The purpose is to help people use their time and space wisely for learning.
The first space is Campfire, which is a place for the teacher to tell students come to the floor. When she says “campfire” everyone meets together on the floor. We use it to learn new things together. Next thing is a Watering hole. It is a place for learning in small groups, with our peers. Next is cave. It is an area to be alone so won’t get distracted from others peers. Second last one is Swamp. Which is for when we get stuck on a task or concept and need to meet in a group with an expert. Last one is Plains for when everyone is working independently, spread out wherever they need to work.
Feelings from classmates:
Holly: I feel like this space makes things easier than Mrs Fintelman saying come to the floor, instead she says “campfire.”
Ellie: I really like having different learning spaces. So everyone can learn differently but in their own learning space and way.
Finlay: I feel like the classroom learning space, it’s very organised.
Issy: I feel that these learning spaces are good and they are organised.
James: I love them they are the best idea ever, especially waterhole.
Imogen: It makes things easier for Mrs Fintelman to get us into our classroom learning space easier and more fun!
Kevin: It is where we listen to the teacher of what we are learning and what we do for.
Aysia: I think that it is great, It’s a wonderful learning space to have because it’s really useful,is helpful and it improve our learning.
Basila: I feel like it helps us and it is fun way to do our learning.
Anh: It helps us learn more easily, in different spaces.
Arky: It is helpful for learning and for me.
Ben: It is good for communicating around the room, so the teacher can get everyone on the floor quickly. It is good so we can learn how to do things really quickly and quietly. I think our classroom learning space is brilliant and everyone should use it in their classroom.
