Genius Hour & Personal Inquiry

Genius Hour

On Fridays we use our time between recess and lunch for Genius Hour projects. During Genius Hour students are empowered to explore their own passions. We have done a lot of work leading up to starting our Genius Hour sessions: we’ve talked about what we love, what we’re passionate about, what interests us and why. Genius Hour is about learning more about what you’re passionate about – exploring new ideas, new concepts, new ways to show your audience what you love!

Personal Inquiry Time

Paper Bag Inventions

On the last day of term 1 the students in Room 3 had two hours to create a new invention using the mysterious contents inside a paper bag.  It was wonderful to see the students display such creativity, problem solving skills and initiative.

Every Friday we have Personal Inquiry Time. The students have 2 hours to plan, create, share and reflect upon a project of their choice. This week we have chosen different Art forms to create. Here are some of the pictures from our weekly sessions.
