There were 4 groups in total and it was interesting to see how each group responded. The boys in the front of the class found using them good to hear from the quieter less overt members of the group. A small group of 3 used them to ensure that they could write in more detail because they were lacking this in their written reflections. The biggest group of girls who had issues with their suppers (ie they ran out of food) were able to talk in honesty about how they felt when this happened. The last group, who were my most able students, didn't find them as useful as I'd hoped, instead choosing to rush through the questions, so they could get to their writing.
