Learning at home
While we all miss getting together to share our learning there are many positives about working at home.
Term 3, 2021 While we all miss getting together to share our learning there are many positives about working at home. Here are some common experiences: * Creativity: trying new things including sewing, painting and cooking amazing things * Sharing work spaces and technology * Space and time for experimenting and explorations * Physical exercise including competitions with Dad and Mum * Helping around the house, the yard or the farm * Spending time with our four legged friends * Baking * Just having fun with the family Family Feedback "Mrs Joiner has done a fantastic job this week Annabel has loved doing the work and a few different activities they wouldn’t normally do in class. Annabel is learning about counting money and change today so we set up Annabel's toy shop with real money and working out the change for items bought - it was a real hit the girls loved it!" Junior School Mum "The girls were really sad when they heard the lockdown news as they love school but they’ve adjusted quickly and I’m finding the lesson plans much more achievable this time around...although it certainly is challenging at times with two little brothers who want my attention as well." Junior School Mum "Learning & working from home so far has started well - Our only problem is the lack of computers to use - We are all working from home lol but making it work. Claire has commented on how much easier this time round is as she knows what to expect. She is loving the work and connection she has with the class." Middle School Mum "I have never made myself more cups of tea (lol)! I have tried the click and collect option for groceries. So we will see how that goes, but am extremely grateful that we can have this option available to us. We are enjoying the calmness our mornings have become - I mean it's only been 2 days, but I love that we are not rushing out of the house like a crazy stampede." Junior and Middle School Mum "I'm loving having the children home." Junior, Middle and Senior School Mum
