A significant step towards gaining a deeper understanding is through promoting opportunities for students to share their thinking. This can be in many and varied settings and styles.  Throughout 2022, our Middle School Assemblies have been showcasing student learning INSIGHTS.  These insights are student centred and from the lens of students sharing their insight to a concept that they are investigating.  As an example, this week, we will be experiencing an insight from Year 6 Croft-Elliott students on their understanding and unpacking of the picture fiction book, ‘Be You’, by Peter H. Reynolds.  The students have been able to highlight a connection to their own selves and how they can express a genre that best depicts them!  Through this sharing, students are also developing creative and critical thinking skills, public speaking skills and an appreciation of diversity.
