Year 6 Update 09/10/2020

“Show me your learning” is a phrase that all parents should be using at home.

y6 update

Students at BISHCMC in Year 6 are extremely privileged to have access to their own laptop and use a variety of software packages to enhance their learning at school. This means that teachers from across all subject areas can consider how best to use this technology to enable students to collaborate both in the classroom and away when at home.

Google classroom is not a new technology, but its use in the upper primary has developed significantly over the last few years. It now enables teachers to easily share lesson content and enables students to work both individually and collaboratively. It is used across all classes in Year 6 and is also used by all classes at the secondary campus. The real power of having access to school content and lessons from home is the strengthening of the home-school link. Homework in Year 6 is set by each individual teacher so that there is a continuation of the learning that is happening in class when at home.

As well as Google Classroom, the students may also be using Seesaw, Microsoft Office, iCloud applications and other online learning tools and accounts - all with the aim of making learning accessible from any location and at any time. The students are developing technology skills that will enable them to act in a responsible way and with integrity whilst connecting with each other and working in ways that simply were not possible when they started their educational journey in F1.

A typical question by every parent when their child gets home is, “How was school today?” On a particularly rare and lucky day a parent may get a detailed commentary on the day but more frequently a grunt or single word answer ‘Alright’ is the usual response. Parents should reframe the question into a statement, “Show me your learning” and then be prepared to be both proud and impressed with the wealth of education that is being provided in Year 6.
