Dear Parents/ Carers,
We are excited to tell you about a new whole school project we are taking part in based on
So far, we have learnt 3 different techniques or ‘CLIPS’ (Co-operative Learning Interaction Pathways)…….
1. Catch 1 Partner-
2. Think, Pair, Share-
3. Boss and Secretary-
The children are very excited to get started and are learning how to do each of the 3 CLIPS this week, ready to use them in their lessons next week. Over the 8 weeks, we will be building up a display of photos and thoughts about what we have been doing and showing everyone how we have used the CLIPS. Come and have a look at it when you come to Parent Consultation Week!
Half way through the project we will be sending home a homework task based on one of the CLIPS so the children will be able to show you how it works!! Co-operative learning in your own home!!
We will also be having learning Cafe where you can come along and try out some of the CLIPS for yourself, with your children and hear about how we use them in lessons.
We hope the children will really enjoy learning in this way and will let you know when we learn some more CLIPS!
Mrs Brady and Mrs Carter.
