It was the Scottish Learning Festival 2018 this week and I was delighted that some of our pupils and staff managed to get along to share our fantastic 'Pupil Led Enquiry' work.
This work was developed in partnership with The University of Strathclyde.
It's main aim was to develop understanding of Health and Wellbeing in the Broad General Education (S1-3) and a key feature of the work involved Alloa Academy pupils leading lessons to other peers in school and in local primary schools.
The lessons included pupils giving examples of positive and negative peer influences using cartoon/celebrity characters as examples. The tasks promoted our learners awareness of peer influences and encouraged them to think of the positive attributes. For the students who delivered the lessons they gained in self confidence and demonstrated key leadership qualities.
