Explanation - How children learn at school?

How children learn at school?

Why is it important to talk in class? The reason why we talk in class is so we can take risks and try new things.

It is important to listen in class so you know what you're learning about. And we can also explore new things so that we know what is the right thing and what is the wrong thing to do.

It is important for the juniors to follow there role model in school. So that we can learn from each other and we can give feedback to the juniors if they want feedback.

If you don't understand anything you should ask a question to your friend or a teacher. The reason why it is good to ask questions is so people can know what you think and so you can learn from other people.

The reason why we should learn at school is so we can learn new skills and use are ability to think.

Today we got to finished of our explanation about How children learn at school?. The person who I have been working with is Sakae and Sakae and I have done a list of words we should do in are explanation and we have tried to look for simple but powerful words e.g ability or skills.
