It struck me that our focus on writing learning reflections on the school blog site could be related to pupils sharing the school experience at home.
Could it be that the articles that have been written on the website helps to
- focus children's understanding of what they have been learning, whether they have written the article or not.
- remind them of the activities that they have been engaged in.
- informs them about what their children are learning and therefore could be the basis of developing a conversation beyond the usual 'What did you do at school?' to 'Can you tell me what your creative story was about today?'
It's not at all clear at this stage that there is a link between the blogging work and pupils sharing work more readily at home, but it's something that several parents mentioned this evening.
