Holiday Learning

Today is the first day of term 2 for 2020, but I am not at school and nor are the children in my class. We are all self-isolating in our homes. Staying in our bubbles to protect our communities from Covid19.

Over the last two weeks we have had the easter holidays. But the year 3 children at their teachers didn't want to stop learning. So we embarked on our Holiday Learning Journey.

This video was on our class site of Friday the 27th March the last day of term 1.

To learn more about our holiday learning journey check out this Class Onair Episode

I loved the learning shared during the holidays. Here are some great examples:


My Dad drew these pictures of me playing "GOTCHA"

To stop the virus there is this game named "gotcha" 

How to play gotcha

If you see someone in your family touching their face you say "gotcha" then they have to stop touching their face and try to not touch their face with their hands. There are two winners who get a prize. One person who has not been touching their face wins. One person who has caught lots of people wins. Our prize was lollies! 


Today was a fun day. We made lots of cookies, and they were yummy with lots of sugar. We made cookie dough and put it in the oven. We made icing and the color was pink, green, and dark green. My siblings and I all got to put icing on the cookie and it was so yummy. We all ate our cookies outside and play games. 


Hello Everyone my Name is Eve. This is how you wash your hands to keep germs off them. 

Thank you for Watching!


  1. Kia ora Clarelle, Awesome to see the learning from home being shared. The GOTCHA drawing especially made be smile ;-)
    I do like your strategy of setting your reminder videos in slide decks to play automatically. This is a simple but helpful feature that you have harnessed to make a powerful difference for your learners.
    Thanks for sharing,

    1. Thank you Fiona,
      It is so wonderful to see the kids learning, creating and sharing in this different context. I particularly liked Toran's GOTCHA post for two reason, firstly it shared what life is like in his house and how they have made health fun. Secondly the post was created as a family. What a reminder this time is for all of us of importance of home-school partnerships.
      Thanks for your comment,
