Virtual Workshop with King's College India
Online learning and virtual classrooms are pretty much the norm these days. Nothing can replace face-to-face contact, and lessons in school, but the virtual world is opening up more and more ways for us all to work together.
This week we were able to harness the use of computer-based communications to connect with our friends at King's College India.
Year 7S met their contemporaries in a session called 'Waste Patch to Green Patch', with a focus on recycling as part of their geography syllabus. Year 4 met virtually in a session called 'Looking After Ourselves', a rather apt topic given this week is Children's Mental Health Week. Led by Mrs Foster and Mrs Willmott, the children had the opportunity to use the session to ask questions of each other, both classes gaining insight into different lives and cultures.
Mrs Willmott said: "The children thoroughly enjoyed their zoom meeting with a class at King's India. The children in India recently completed a cross-curricular topic on keeping healthy. Their study included food science, physical education, culture, religion and maths. A number of the children presented their work and talked confidently about food in India, making particular reference to cultural and religious influences as well as regional variations."
She added: "The meeting was an excellent experience for all, and something that the children would very much like to repeat!"
