    Default Sharing learning with parents...

    I have just put my November newsletter on the parents page of my Knutsford Childminding | Sarah Neville - Registered Childminder website.

    If you want to have a read you will see one of the ways I am developing which enables me to share information about our planned activities and children's learning with their parents.

    I have always found some parents really easy to approach while others want to be less involved in their children's time here - but when I last asked for feedback on our newsletters all parents said they read them!

    So, I decided it would be a good idea to capitalise on this and use it to my advantage.

    I intend to include at least 1 new thing which the children have worked on during the month - as well as my usual 'this month we have done... / next month we are doing... ' section.

    I will do it for a few months and then ask for feedback and see if it is working.

    I will of course put the results - positive or negative - in my SEF.

    I look forward to your feedback guys! We can crack this new 'sharing children's learning with home' requirement if we all work together

    good luck!

    the majority of my parents do respond, but a couple don't! they say they read everything ... but i'm not sure it goes in!

    i have resorted to telling one mum that i HAVE to have some responses from her ... because ofsted like proof that we work together! that seemed to get through! for the moment anyway!

    I like the hand washing song - I'm not convinced some parents teach their children to wash their hands at all though

    Thanks for the ideas Sarah

    Thanks for sharing Sarah, I started a Newsletter for my parents, and changed it and changed it and.................
    Mine got too bogged down I think.
    The way you've set things out but kept to the point is what I was trying to do - and failing.

    Try again at the weekend!
