Hear Me Become a Reader
There is nothing quite like playing back something that you have rehearsed or performed and just... listening: feeling pride in your successes; noticing the areas for improvement and acting on them. This is what real learning is all about!
'Hear Me Become A Reader' is our way of enabling pupils to journal their reading journey; giving pupils ownership over their development within the subject. With more and more pupils uploading audio readings on a weekly basis, we wanted to make this process more interactive and even easier than ever.
With this in mind, 'Hear Me Become A Reader' has changed platforms - no more weekly assignments or uploading of separate audio files. With Microsoft OneNote, pupils now record and upload on the platform itself, to a confidential section in the 'class notebook' - just between the child and their teacher. What's more, pupils (and parents) can comment under each recording, as well as adding to a 'collaboration space' where pupils can recommend new books to their classmates. There is also a 'content library' containing key reading resources to help equip your child with the tools they may need to become more fluent and comprehensive readers.
The same expectations of a weekly recorded reading will be required as part of your child's home learning diet; but within the class notebook, pupils could easily upload a recording every night of the week if they wanted to (as has been requested by pupils and parents).
If using a laptop or PC, pupils can still access their class notebook via their TEAMS account, or if using a tablet or mobile phone, you can download the Microsoft OneNote APP from your APP store and sign in using your child's MS TEAMS login details (please note it can sometimes take up to 24 hours to sync notebooks).
Have a go and explore the class notebook - the more your child uses it, the more confident they will become at leading their own learning. We can't wait to see how pupils use this new tool to enhance their learning at Mayflower!
