Learning Logs

Year 1 and Year 2 have a Learning Log activity linked to their learning in class each week. Please ensure your child completes their task on time. The tasks are designed to build upon previous learning and support your child in class. They are a great opportunity for children to share at home what they have learnt in school and to extend their knowledge. You can use many methods to work with your child to present the work. You may want to take photos, cut things out, paint, draw, colour or write. Please help your child to take pride in their work and have fun working on tasks! Year R children do not take Learning logs home until the Summer Term.


  • Year 1 learning logs go home on a Thursday and are due in on Tuesdays.
  • Year 2 learning logs go home on Wednesday and are due in on Mondays.


Learning log workshops are run every week in class to give you ideas on how best to support your child.

  • Year 1 Workshop -  Thursday 3.10 pm in your child's classroom
  • Year 2 Workshop -  Wednesday 3.10 pm in your child's classroom


You will be given the opportunity to discuss the task and suggestions on how to tackle the task at home. If you have any further questions please ask your child’s class teacher for further support.

Some former Year 1 children have shared some of their work and thoughts on learning logs to help you at home.
