Learning Journals

Year 2 children use learning Journals to review and extend their learning. They will bring it home on Thursday afternoons.

Please return it to school by Tuesday.


There will be a sticker to explain our learning objectives for that week and also a sheet which will have a list of different tasks that your child can choose from. We will have talked about these tasks in class and the children may have suggested some of the tasks themselves.


We hope to have some fun online learning resources as part of our home learning which will be up and running later this term.


Please talk about the tasks and then let your child pick ONE which they should then record in any way in their Journal.


If you would like to record your child’s ideas then this is fine.

Please encourage them to read their ideas back to you and talk them over.

Please encourage your child to record their work in any creative way that they choose, written, fold out charts, pictures, diagrams, photos, etc. I will provide suggestions but feel free to let your child take charge and be as creative as they like. Most weeks they will be very practical tasks.

This homework aims to be fun, creative and individual to your child. We hope it will provide you with better information about what your child is learning in school and give interesting ideas about how you can support and develop that learning at home.

This homework should not take any longer than 25 minutes per activity.

Please encourage your child to take pride in their Journal and complete their work in pencil in their neatest handwriting.

We will share the Journals on Thursday so the children can enjoy and learn from each others work and ideas.

Please let me know how you are getting on.

Have fun!
