This year in year 6, we are embracing every opportunity to work with different groups of people all of the time.
The children are swapping their seating positions every Monday and sitting next to some one new for a week. This gives them an opportunity to talk, discuss, work and learn with different peers throughout the year.
They have really embraced this challenge and been very mature about it. There have been a number of comments made about how interesting it is learning about their peers. They are developing their Oracy skills daily and even surprising themselves with how much they can learn from each other.
