Cooperative learning

Lots of the most effective learning in 6CM is deeply collaborative.  The children share ideas, articulate methods, and deepen understanding by coaching classmates.  In today’s maths lesson we used structures ‘Numbered Heads Together’ (where the children independently solve problems and then share and explain their solutions), Sage and Scribe (where they instruct one another on a particular mathematical method), and ‘Circle the Sage’ (where a number of children in the class who are confident using a particular skill hold mini workshops to demonstrate and explain the skill to classmates who each choose which of the ‘sages’ to work with).
