Learning Walls - the "third" teacher!

Learning Walls - the "third" teacher!

We have been working with student council regarding learning environments at Kearsley Academy.

The learning walls within classrooms are encouraging students to be interactive and to invite connections with current learning.

Student feedback said that learning walls needed to be "engaging, bright and useful", when discussing 'useful', students wanted access to another way of learning, such as practice questions, glossaries, success rubrics and support materials.

The "third teacher" aims to support students in their curiousity by providing additional learning materials and thought provoking challenges.

We look forward to sharing some of our learning wall designs with you!
