Flipped Learning in Year 3

This year in Year 3, we are trialling the use of the flipped classroom, a concept I first learned about from Aaran Sams. Short video tasks are given to be worked through for homework so that classroom time can be used for clearing up misunderstandings and/or extending our learning.

Here is an example of one of our recent flipped learning homework tasks where we were  learning to subtract by counting on.  We use @gareth_metcalfe’s idea of having two videos to choose from: Get Secure or Aim Higher.  Most of us choose to watch Get Secure: others, who feel more confident straight away, choose the Aim Higher version.  Some children choose to do both!

When we bring our homework in on Monday morning, we put our books underneath the appropriate traffic light.  That way, we know we will do the work best suited to us later in the day.
