This term, Intermediate Phase have been learning about persuasive writing techniques, in English. During group teaching and learning session, students were able to collaborate with their peers by brainstorming persuasive word choices for their upcoming assessments. These group sessions were not only enjoyable and community building, but also vital in extending students’ writing skills and vocabulary.

Here are some parent testimonials for the group teaching and learning sessions:

‘The group sessions were awesome. I think Denyella would benefit from more of those’- Year 5 parent.

‘The group sessions were a welcome addition, adding an extra dimension to learning, keeping things new and interesting and giving some extra connection amongst the students – keen for these to continue this way’- Year 6 parent
