Response to Covid
I enjoyed doing phonics every day with my class.
It was useful to have the pack of equipment (exercise book, pencil, pen, ruler, rubber, whiteboard, whiteboard pen) so that we could write things down. I find it easier to remember my learning when I write things.
The teachers taught us how to upload photos to Google Classroom.
I am faster at typing than writing so I liked being able to do my work on Google Classroom.
I liked that I got a Special Mention Certificate sent to my house.
I found it easier to concentrate when I was being taught on Zoom because there were less distractions.
I liked coming into school because I could ask the adults to help me straight away.
