‘A learning journey is a collection of pieces of information that, when connected together, creates a picture of a particular child’
We have begun displaying learning journeys at all our nurseries to document the learning taking place. These have been completed with groups of children, or individually dependant on the child’s interests.
They can be displayed as creatively as possible!
The above picture is from our Sunbeams at Little Achievers Nursery in the Park. They kept their display in a natural theme in keeping with our Reggio inspired nurseries. Included is lots of photos of the children with links to the characteristics of effective learning.
Below you can see the starting point of our learning journey from Little Achievers Day Nursery. Speech bubbles display the children’s voices and arrows show the way the activity expanded linked to areas of learning.
Above is an example of an individual learning journey display from Little Achievers Forest School Nursery. This shows the individuality of the child with learning and development that is personal to them.
Below shows another idea of individual learning journeys from Little Achievers Urban Forest School. Each child has there own box with their work displayed and their own photos. As an added extra their learning is documented in personalised books that have been made by their key person.
Some fabulous ideas from our teams to document some amazing learning opportunities that we offer.
They promote pride in the children, as well as giving excellent opportunities for children to discuss themselves and what they have done promoting links to their own learning.
Keep your eyes peeled in our settings for your child’s learning journey!
