 Flipped Classroom

Flipped classroom is something we introduced into Year 6 last year and it has had a huge impact on children's learning. Flipping a classroom is an affective process where the children take home work to complete before it is covered the following day. This process allows more teaching time at school with the teacher.

In reading we ask the children to read a short piece of text and then answer three questions. When the children come in to school the following day we don't need to read the text in lesson time and we use the answers from the three questions to identify what the children need to be taught. 

In maths we look at how to solve a particular mathematic problem. The children are asked to watch a video clip specific to this problem which covers the understanding needed and the strategy that can be used. The children then try to answer a few questions to show us what they understand and are able to do. The children then bring in these answers the next day and we use this to identify the areas that need to be taught.

Flipped learning gives us more time to teach, tailoring our teaching to specifically support the learning need.  Last year, flipped learning resulted in a huge amount of progress in both reading and math’s. 

 

If you have any questions, please ask. You can speak to the year six teachers on the yard each morning, attend one of the open classroom events, or come along to a parent workshop where we explain things in even more detail.

You did us proud Year 6!
