Interesting ways to get to know your new class

In Australia winter is being replaced by some warmer days, in Melbourne anyway, which means in the Northern Hemisphere schools will soon be returning. The first few weeks should be about getting to know your class, the better we know our class the better we can design learning for them.

This resource for Interesting Ways to get to know your New Class has been developed over the six years in an effort to gather and curate some tips and activities to help those early sessions we all have with our class.

I hope that the ideas prove useful as we get to this time of year – if you have your own ideas for classroom activities or ways that you build some class bonding in the early days of the new term, or even if you have whole school ideas for organising cross-over days, please consider contributing them.
