Education Week

30/05/2014
"Warm Ups" in the Year 3 room.
Education Week, last week, was a busy time at Meringandan State School and we enjoyed being able to showcase our talented students as well as the teaching and learning in classrooms. 
Thank you to the P and C members for assisting with the morning tea. It was great to see parents, carers and family members joining in the activities in classrooms, participating in the early language development workshop and walking with children to school on Friday.
  
 
During the open morning, many of our teachers demonstrated the teaching of a ‘warm up’ which is an element of the explicit teaching lesson structure. 
The purpose of a ‘warm up’ is to focus students’ attention and interest and is a key strategy in moving students’ knowledge from short term memory to long term memory.
