LEARNING LOGS

We use Learning Logs to make homework more fun and to encourage children to extend and consolidate the learning that has taken place in school in a more creative and independent way. Each pupil has the freedom to express their understanding in any way they like – they may choose to draw a picture or a mind map or a piece of writing.

Use the internet to help you with research and ideas but lots of printed sheets (with some difficult words) won't help you to present to your group.

Useful things, felt pens, coloured pencils, post-its, glue, scrap paper the list is endless !

Homework is an extension of school work so don;t forget our presentation target 

Here are some examples of ways to present your work. You will need to talk about your work and what you have found out so you will need to be able to read it.
