Home Learning

This year, we are introducing an exciting new way to record, track and share your child’s learning during their time in Early Years. This system, called an ‘online learning journal’ will enable staff to take photographs, videos and make written observations of the activities your child does at school. You will then have access to this information (using your email address and a secure password to log in) so you can celebrate this learning at home too. Parents/carers can also add their own photos and comments to the journal of their child’s learning and achievements outside school.
