Learning Journeys are a collection of observations and assessments, together with supporting evidence, including artwork, photos, mark-making etc. All these documents are linked with the EYFS and branch over all of the areas of learning. The aim of a Learning Journey is to create a unique picture of your child’s development, what they know and feel they can achieve, and the child’s individual learning style. The Learning Journey can be used to inform further planning for activities that will motivate and be relevant to the child. It also enables us to see what your child has achieved over a period of time.
Observations and assessments are an on-going process in our nursery, in accordance with the EYFS. These ensure we plan activities that are age and stage appropriate, for all the children in the group and to each child’s individual needs.
A final summary of these assessments will be compiled at the end of each term, to see how your child has progressed in all areas of the EYFS. There will also be optional parent/teacher consultations, at the end of each term, in addition to regular informal chats and email correspondence, to allow discussion about your child and their learning and development.
