Year 6 had a great discussion today on what we think learning is. We analysed some symbols of learning. There was some incredibly creative thinking.
“I like this symbol because it shows that all of your ideas have to work together to make a final idea. There isn’t one final idea because you can just keep adding bits in.”
“I like the jigsaw puzzle because you need the bits to build on each other. I don’t like the fact that a puzzle has to end though. Learning doesn’t end.”
“I don’t like this one because it looks like other people are pushing learning into the brain. It doesn’t look like the person is doing anything themselves.”
” I like the two people talking because they have different ideas but together these make new ideas.”
They were then challenged to come up with their own symbol for learning. Their reasoning and explanations around their choices were so impressive.
