In their mid-term exams, students are required to write an essay on our significant places in our community and to think about why it is important to know about our community. 13 boys sat the exam and 5 of them passed. 7 girls sat the exam and only 1 of them did not achieve. Overall, I was disappointed with the results as I thought the context of learning about our community would've engaged them in their learning and motivated them to try harder.
For my next steps, I want to utilise the strategies that I had learnt from Jannie in term one and focus on really 'energising their brains' to slow down the learning and focus on understanding and applying key concepts and terms.
