It is so great to be working with the Junior team this term to focus on agency with their learners. I have enjoyed learning together to create new resources that can enhance practice by intentionally planning and questioning . The three hub reps have then planned to go back and share our learning so it reaches a wider community. I am so happy to have got to this stage as part of the Agency Team and it is in turn enhancing my practice as I am bringing what I have been researching as part of my inquiry and now sharing it. I have been reflecting on how I can use visuals to stimulate agency and this is what we are planning to implement in the Junior areas too. It has been so great to have amazing growth mindsets to collaborate with as they are also using visuals in their own practise so we can share our current practice to break ground!! Exciting times ahead......
Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
