Fortnightly Learning
Based upon our experience of working with parents a two weekly schedule of Home Learning activities, outlines and objectives has proven the most useful. This is due, in our view, to the fact that parents are often too busy to 'checkin' on their child's learning, school website or learning goals each and every few days and hence, based upon experience and feedback, we aim to share children's learning goals on a fortnightly basis rather than weekly. Although, the outlines and objectives we share will be broken down into a weekly structure. A further rationale for this approach is that learning is not a 'linear' process, and hence allowing our students scope over the course of 7, 10, 14 or so days to grasp the essentials of any specific topic or target enables all learners to better meet the objectives set....
