Curious Question of the Week: Invent a Language for the World
Our Curious Question this week: If you were going to invent a language for the whole world to speak, where would you start?
Our How Curious Are You? competition encourages students to be curious outside of lessons too.
Every Monday a curious question is released via social media and students have all week to think about the question and submit a response to the ‘curious box’ in the library. On Friday, student leaders read these responses and select the winning entries.
Participating in this competition encourages students to display our learning behaviours such as being curious about learning, thinking hard and showing scholarly behaviours outside of lessons. That's why all entries receive 5 BBB points (see Rewards and Praise page).
Curious Questions from previous weeks:
If William had not won the Battle of Hastings in 1066, how different would England be today?
Last week's curious question asked students to consider the impact that William the Conqueror had on England. All answers submitted were really thoughtful and demonstrated a real sense of curiosity. Well done to Carmen for the winning entry. She wrote a very detailed and thoughtful answer where she considered that if William the Conqueror had not won the Battle of Hastings, then the United Kingdom may not even exist, we would have a different royal family today and some of our most famous landmarks, such as the Tower of London, would never have been built. You can see Carmen's answer below. Well done, Carmen!
