Creative remote learning
As schools across Northern Ireland prepared for another week of remote learning, Dunclug Primary School created a fun video to encourage the school community.
Teachers across the country have found creative ways to adapt their teaching. Pupils have had to adjust to a different learning environment and parents have had to juggle like never before.
Like many schools, Dunclug Primary School have adopted a ‘blended approach’ to remote learning, offering their families both written home learning packs and also online learning via programmes such as Bug Club Reading, Mathletics numeracy and See-Saw.
As the school community settles into this more sustainable and longer period of home learning, the need to foster a sense of community at a distance has never been more important. Schools are working hard to maintain this sense of pupil belonging and teacher presence. Interaction has never been more important between teachers, parents/carers and pupils, between teaching and non-teaching staff, between the school and the wider community it serves.
A fun video showcasing examples of Dunclug Primary School’s pupils’ remote learning (alongside a catchy backing track!) is just one very simple example of fostering this sense of community at a distance – enjoy!
