It was wonderful to come into school this morning and have one family excitedly present me with the home learning they had all done together over the weekend. they had got their child to write a recount of the weekend, but did not help him at all, instead let him struggle and make mistakes.
Then, once he had persevered and struggled through, they went back over the writing together to find those mistakes, to own them and correct them so they didn’t happen again. I could not believe the quality of relationships and understanding of learning that this shows and was delighted that Mum and Dad were able to be strong enough to take this approach and not step in to make things easier just when things got tricky.
Really well done.
