I asked my students to write on sticky notes what they thought learning Maths looked like. After our poster was finished we discussed their ideas and related their ideas to our Learning Cycle. The children were able to talk about our learning cycle and relate our school cycle to numeracy.
The Learning Cycle enables me to reflect when planning. I need to be able to answer these questions!
What do I want my students to know / learn? How best will they learn? How will I know they know what has been taught?
Making learning explicit to our students in all areas of the curriculum is essential.
