Dear Elementary School Families,
As we conclude Week 6 of our Distance Learning programme, we have noticed higher levels of engagement and participation by our Elementary Students.
We have been very careful to ensure that the concept of “Distance Learning” has not been confused with “Online Learning” and to emphasise that we do not want our students to be in front of screens all day every day.
Distance Learning in our Elementary School can most aptly be described as a blended approach of on-screen, off-screen, live lessons and independent learning time. The graphic presented here provides an overview of each of the key components of our Distance Learning programme.
Over the next two weeks as we head towards Spring Break we hope to maintain high levels of engagement as we look to gather as much evidence of student learning as we can. Teachers have been providing feedback on students’ work each week, in order to help improve students’ learning and to help our students know what their next steps are. Please continue to encourage your children to participate in as much of the Distance Learning as possible, and to share their work with their teachers.
