A Learning Story is a short story that has been documented in one precise moment and/or over a period of time. It focuses on a learning journey or a moment that a child or a group of children were involved in. For you as the parent, it is an opportunity to gain insight to the type of learning your child is involved in at a specific time as well as creating a transparent link between home and school. For the teacher, Learning Stories are used as part of their assessment toolkit to help scaffold children’s learning and acts as one part of their assessment documentation demonstrating each child’s learning journey.
