Our school loves Learning Maps and the other day we were very lucky to have Kelly from New Zealand in our room, to teach us all about them. We began by talking about things we had learned and then who helped us learn them. Some people shared their ideas, including learning to swim, ride a bike, and how to kick a football! Kelly wrote our ideas on the whiteboard, and then we went to our tables to have a go at drawing our own. It was a great activity because we couldn’t get anything wrong – it was all about our ideas! Haha!
I liked drawing the people that helped me learn like my sister! – Declan
I liked going back to draw my daddy, because he helps me learn! – Chris
It was a fun activity to draw people that helped me! – Claire
It was good to know who helps me learn. – Josh
After we had a go at our tables, we came down to the mat and shared our ideas with each other. It was good to talk about what we had done, because we learned new people and things to put on our maps from our friends! Afterwards we went back to our tables again to add the new things we discovered! Learning Maps went really well and we’re excited to be doing more soon, and finding out a bit more about how we learn, who helps us, and how!
Here are our photos – take a look!
