Learning Stories is an optional feature included within sparkESSENTIAL and sparkPRO.
It can be used by the setting internally and the Learning Stories are added to the child’s Learning Journey made by the school.
Learning Stories can also be shared with parents of particular children through sparkLINK and spark@HOME.
These show a series of photos and are generally used to record the child;-
– At various times during the day (during transitions perhaps)
– Learning a skill
– Participating in a particular activity.
Parents using spark@HOME receive a push notification in the early evening so they can share these photos with their child. This encourages a quality moment between parent and child, which may also extend learning and development. Furthermore, encouraging conversations across both home and setting supports good mental health for the child too.
