Popcorn – students as teachers

This term the Senior Learning Team took part in a Popcorn programme with a difference.  Instead of parents and teachers sharing their knowledge and skills it was students.

All students identified a talent that they were able to teach others. Mr T and Mrs Hosie then looked at which options were possibilities (some had to be turned down due to cost or safety factors).  A list of these was given to the students so they could select three that they would like to be part of. Everyone got their first, second or third choice.

Our options were:
Sewing, German, history, film making, paper planes, origami, running techniques, tennis coaching, animals and pets, card games, computer animation, cartoon or portrait drawing. gymnastics and magic tricks.

Everyone gave the new look Popcorn programme the thumbs up. We loved teaching other students and learning new things in this way.
