The good learning book is a way of sharing the high quality work that individuals or groups have completed in class. Children who have work to show can either be brought, or make their own way to the head teacher’s office.
Either the Head or the Deputy will look at the work alongside the child and ask them questions about what they have been doing and why it is worthy of the good learning book.
Children will then receive a head teacher’s sticker, a label to explain why they have been added to the good learning book (for parents) and their name will be added to the newsletter. When the pupils return to class, they should be added to Seesaw.
There is an expectation that pupils should be entered into the good learning book between 2 and 4 times a year with every child having their name in the book by February half-term.
We have recently recruited some digital leaders in the school.
