Unpacking the Key Competencies

Today we unpacked the Key Competencies.  We worked in groups in a bus stop activity.  Each piece of paper had a Key Competency and a question.  The challenge was to think of new ideas that had already been taken by the group before us!

We then had to act out a 'photo image' to represent which Key Competency we had.  It was challenging trying to think of a way we could pose to communicate the message to our audience.

Key Competencies are so important because they are core skills we need to have in order to have a positive time at school and a positive life.

Looking forward to 2014

Miss Kyla asked Room 8 what being back at school means to them and what they are looking forward to this year.  Here are some responses presented as a wordle display!  What are you looking forward to achieving in 2014?
