As the pandemic took charge, schools throughout the nation were closed on Friday 20 March only allowing vulnerable children and children of key workers to remain in school.
During the lockdown, schools and children alike have been faced with huge challenges. Whilst some kids may have been prepared with 1 or 2 exercise books and homework packs, others introduced entirely new home learning systems like this school. The team behind the Mount Stewart schools have worked so hard to keep their children learning in the class as well as from home online by setting structured systems, the use of Google Classrooms, Zoom calls, videos and lots of other resources to facilitate learning at home throughout this difficult time.
This week, Primary schools across England gradually open up for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children. Without a doubt, the Mount Stewart Schools will have implemented enviable methods and structures to ensure everyone’s safety, well-being and the best learning experience.
