Classroom takeover: students become teachers for a day

Classroom takeover

TWO STUDENTS from Cooks Spinney Primary Academy, Harlow, turned the tables when they taught a history lesson to their fellow classmates.

Dawson and Holly, despite only being in Year 6, successfully planned and delivered an entire lesson on spies during WW2.

The children were able to engage their classmates throughout and their extensive knowledge of the subject allowed them to answer any questions presented by their peers.

They even planned an activity involving writing secret messages with lemon juice.

Jess Farrell, their Year 6 teacher, said: “The children loved being taught by Dawson and Holly and have already asked if others could deliver lessons in the future.

“It is so nice to see children passionate about learning and wanting to share their knowledge.”
