Students will need access to a computer, microphone preferable but optional, and will be sent a web link for the video-class each week. They will also need a device to listen to the recordings each week. We use the fully secure and private Google Meet for our classes. No software download is required but internet access is necessary.
We like to support the learning of our students by encouraging reflection, self-enquiry, presentation, discussion and drawing. This class will also include some video clips, and you will be sent optional exploration activities and games to undertake after the class at any time that is practical for the learner and the family.
All learners will have the opportunity to engage with us and present their ideas and thoughts to the group as we progress through the classes. Presenting is not essential but we love hearing what these little luminous humans have to share.
