Stepping away from screens to learn at home

Stepping away from screens to learn at home

Posted: 16th February 2021

Children learning remotely from home have been encouraged to step away from their computers and learn in alternative ways.

Magna Carta Primary Academy held a No Screens Day to give pupils a break from their online learning during lockdown.

Pupils were challenged to spend the day cooking with their families to cover all subject areas –

  • reading – choosing and following a recipe
  • design and technology – adapting a recipe to taste, chopping, cutting, slicing, folding, mixing, glazing, grating, stirring, tasting, evaluating
  • maths - weighing, measuring, portioning, dividing
  • science - mixing ingredients- reversible and irreversible changes, heating, cooling
  • art – photography
  • writing - personalising a recipe, critiquing the finished product
  • PSHE - eating together, sharing, enjoying, washing up, cleaning
  • geography - learning about where the food/ingredients come from
  • RE and history - some foods have links to religion or history

Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “Pupils, teachers and parents have been doing a terrific job getting to grips with remote teaching and learning. While it isn’t ideal, we have all made the most of this difficult time.

“It was a terrific day and an absolute joy to see how much fun our pupils were having, preparing, cooking and then eating their meals, some with siblings, some with parents.

“The learning that happens during events like this cannot be underestimated. All of our in-school bubbles also spent part of the day cooking.”

Pupils shared photos of the meals they created with their teachers.
