Asking questions

 

We were given the task of thinking of questions that we would like to be answered so that we can learn more about what it is like to go to school in Lebanon.

 

Here is the email that we sent:

 

 

Good afternoon

 

We have drawn our pictures showing what we think your classroom looks like and have now created a list of questions that we would like you to kindly answer so that we can develop a better understanding of what it is like to go to school in Lebanon.

 

Our questions:

 

  1. What meals does your school provide at lunchtime?
  2. What games do you play at lunchtime?
  3. What do you want to be when you are older?
  4. Do you have a school council?  If you do, what do you do and if you don't, why not?
  5. What is the favourite thing about your school and why?
  6. What lessons do you have and what is your favourite?
  7. Do you have resources in the classroom, and if you do, what are they and do you use them?
  8. Do you write in exercise books or do you have folders?
  9. Do you hold different types of events like sports day, fetes, fundraising or discos?
  10. Do you have the same teacher all day?
  11. Do you have technology such as iPads and laptops?
  12. Do you have a reading book which you read as a class?
  13. How do you learn to read and are you encouraged to read regularly?
  14. Do you go on school trips?
  15. Do you have rewards such as certificates etc?  How is good learning and behaviour celebrated?
  16. Do you have homework and if you do, how much and what sort?
  17. Do you have a music specialist teacher or any other teachers that are specialist in one subject?
  18. What is in your classroom?  How is it laid out?
  19. How many children are in your class?
  20. What time do you start school and what time do you finish?  Do you have any after school clubs?

 

 

We look forward to receiving the questions that you would like us to answer.  We can then skype each other and share our answers.  We are thoroughly enjoying learning about school in another country.

 

Have a wonderful weekend.

 

Kind regards
