Please hand home learning in by a Wednesday

Home Learning Logs

  • Children choose activities that they'd like to complete - with a minimum expectation given (depending on their key stage).
  • Activities set will cover a range of skills and be based on class work or outdoor learning opportunities. (i.e. write, make, create, draw, design, visit)
  • The children choose their own method to present their learning.
  • The tasks will be open ended.
  • The children should use no more than two double page spreads for each activity.
  • There is no one right way of presenting the work.
  • It is up to your child to decide the best ways of sharing their learning.
  • It is hoped that they will be creative and imaginative, choosing different ways to present what they know. For example:
    • A mixture of writing, pictures, computer generated work, tables, maps etc
    • Sticking down folded-up sheets
    • Flaps with questions, with the answers, information or pictures underneath.
    • Making things pop-up.
    • Fold out mini zig-zag books.

 What are the Benefits of Learning Logs?

  • The children take the lead role in sharing and developing their knowledge and understanding and displaying this in a range of styles.
  • Develops independence.
  • The children can learn in their preferred style.
  • The work is driven by the child and not the teacher, parent or carer.
  • Children, parents and carers are brought together.
  • They are fun! 

 How to help at home...

  • You do not need to provide lots of expensive equipment but it would be helpful to have the essentials available such as, a pencil, pencil crayons, glue, a rubber, scissors.
  • Encouragement of creativity without adding pressure!
  • There will be “good” times to do this work but last thing on the evening before the books are due to be returned is probably not one of them!
  • Give children time to talk about what they have to do – explaining and discussing the task will help your child to understand
  • Offer ideas on how to present the work
  • Give children a space to work which is away from other distractions.
  • Continue with hearing your child read at home.
