Another epic week of some great examples of home learning from our students. Thanks to the students for the great work, and to the parents for helping them along the way which we know isn’t easy.
However, a huge thanks to our teachers who have worked relentlessly since lockdown. To set work in this way is no easy thing, and I’ve been blown away by the fact that our staff are creating new resources and new and innovative ways of learning from home. I’ve not seen staff just merely refer to external resources, but completely adapt schemes of learning, and resources all from scratch, all the while adapting to new technologies. I’ve seen this at leader level, but also as a parent myself. I’ve heard teacher readings of text to cater for students who struggle to read and comprehend; I’ve seen video lessons and explanations to make things clear; I’ve seen quizzes and kahoots to promote learning of prior material, and finally live lessons too. All along with the fortnightly form tutor calls too to check in, and teachers ready at the end of an e-mail, swift to respond to queries and offer further explanation. Learning has been varied and rich, and whilst it’s never going to replace face to face teaching, I think a good job has been done by students, parents and staff to adapt so quickly at this time. Anyway, here’s a celebration of the most recent home learning efforts celebrated by the teachers.
