Kids teaching kids!
We’re fast approaching the end of the year, and while pupils are itching for the summer holidays, a great way to keep them engaged in learning new skills is to encourage a little peer-led learning.
An example of a short video where a simple baking skill is very cleverly taught by a child can be found at this link: http://saucepankids.com/index.php/2012/07/making-baking-trays-non-stick/.
Are there any skills that the pupils can learn from one another between now and the summer holidays? Examples of videos or presentations the pupils could make include:
- Points to remember when accepting an award
Awards such as the Green Flag Award are heading towards many schools this month. Can pupils teach each other the importance of posture, being prepared, and speaking clearly when accepting an award?
- Safe hand-washing
Over the summer there can be a lot of running between the kitchen and the garden! Do pupils know how to do a correct 30-second hand-wash?
- Safely crossing the road
Is the pitch for the Sports Day on school grounds or is there a little walk to get to it? Perhaps pupils could make a short video to remind other pupils about safe travel on the road, especially when they are travelling in groups.
