Primary Six


Lockdown Learning - March to June 2020

Due to the the Covid 19 pandemic the children in Primary 6 faced an unexpected and unusual way of working and learning. No longer sitting in a classroom surrounded by their classmates but having to complete their learning activities at home with their other family members. 

The Primary 6 teachers found a way to communicate with their children and the parents through Class Dojo. This allowed the teachers and parents to keep in touch on a daily basis. The boys and girls had to complete their school work and learning through the use of Google Classroom. Google Classroom was the main forum to upload the activities for the children to complete each week in the different subject areas. 

Websites such as, Learning by Questions, 10ticks and Studyladder were used to enhance the children's learning experiences. Explain Everything allowed the teachers to assist with the more challenging areas of numeracy and literacy. 

We were very impressed by how quickly the children adapted to this new and unfamiliar way of learning. 
The children shared their work, their play and their experiences with their teachers and classmates by sending photographs, videos and messages. This helped to keep everyone motivated and stay in touch.
