During the first lockdown, this was all new and we quickly learnt that the importance of using technology went way beyond posting lessons on Google classroom- the most important thing was connecting with the children, being available for drop in support at least daily via Google meets. We also started weekly quizzes, scavenger hunts, fancy dress, meeting our pets etc. The highlight had to be a police versus kids quiz for the oldest children (the children came out on top obviously).
