Welcome to the Study Zone!
The Study Zone is home to Year 5 and Year 6. We know how important it is to be engaged with our learning, challenging our thinking and questioning our ideas. We understand that discussion is an important aspect of our learning, helping us to see different perspectives, different methods of solving problems and also helping us to be open to exploring different ideas.
We like to work in a variety of ways: peer learning to share our understanding; talking buddies to think things through; working in groups or individually to achieve our work. We strive to be independent learners and know it is okay to get 'stuck', as we learn from our mistakes. We mostly work at our tables but sometimes work together on the carpet in groups with the teacher. Some of us choose to work on the carpet during independent tasks as we find this more comfortable and so can focus more easily.
