‘Learning Ladders’ is an online tool that our class teachers use every week to record and assess which learning objectives each child is working on in class.
‘Ladders at Home’ will allow us to connect you to your child’s learning in real-time, giving you access to what they are learning in school right now, as well as a large quantity of information about why this objective is important and how you can support this objective at home. The articles have been created by hundreds of UK classroom teachers and offer a wealth of ideas and activities that will enable you to easily take your child’s learning from school to home. The articles are also available in a range of languages.
‘Ladders at Home’ will be used in addition to the weekly homework/tasks posted on the D6 communicator. It is an optional extra for you to support your child’s learning at home, however we encourage you to use it as often as possible in order to remain informed about what is happening in class. Currently, our teachers use Learning Ladders in the following subjects:
