We asked Miss Martina, our Year 5 mothertongue English teacher (primary school) to tell us about her experience with distance learning:
In our year five English grammar lessons we have been working on direct speech, collective nouns and pronouns. In science we have covered the main parts of the body; the brain, the heart and the central nervous system, recently I asked them to use items in their homes to create neurones and they did an amazing job! In history we have been working on the Romans, this has included learning about the Roman soldiers and their uniforms, crime and punishment and the latest has seen the children designing their own Roman Baths. We use at least ten minutes every day to chat in English to keep their level of conversation up and it’s been a joy to see them and hear them chat informally. They have also made me laugh every day with the answers to some of the ‘question time’ I ask them.
Here are some examples of work done by Miss Martina’s students:
