Younger children have a shorter attention span, so I was initially concerned about teaching younger children online. After a few sessions, I soon discovered that it was easier to overcome this online than in a classroom. If I notice a child is beginning to lose concentration, I can quickly move to a grammar or maths game to liven things up, or watch a 1 minute video clip and ask them to tell me all the adjectives they can think of etc. before returning to the lesson.
