We began today’s SEAL lesson with ‘Pass the Smile’: an activity design to… guess what? Make us all smile! All we had to do was give each other a simple compliment and that was enough to put us all in a good mood.
Afterwards, we continued our ‘New Beginnings’ by talking about how, as well as having a positive attitude, knowing how to keep calm and having rules to follow it is also good to understand what kind of learners we are to help us progress in Y6.
Surprisingly, there are lots of different types of learners including:
- Visual learners – Visual learners learn by watching/seeing how something works. Pictures and diagrams help them to learn.
- Auditory learners – Auditory comes from the word audio and means to listen.Auditory learners learn best by listening how something works or how to do it.
- Writing/Reading learners – Some people can learn something forever by justreading or writing it down once. This is very rare.
- Kinesthetic learners – Kinesthetic learners learn best by doing. They like touse their hands to make and create to help them learn
