What are Primary School Planners?
Primary school planners are an Ideal resource for Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils, to be used as a learning aid, a homework diary and development tool and can help improve home-school communication and parental engagement.
Primary school planners can include everything from reading records, homework diaries, subject support, timetables and more.
Our fully customised primary school planners are designed to meet your school’s and pupils’ every need.
Could I use multiple editions?
Many schools choose to create a different planner edition for each year group or key stage. By doing so, you can make the content much more appealing and relevant to each group.
We allow you to create multiple editions of your planners at no extra cost.
If you choose to create multiple editions you can:
- Choose a weekly page with a different focus for each group, e.g. homework or reading.
- Include curriculum support material specific to each key stage.
- Have unique cover designs for each edition.
- Different covers, internal pages, binding, and lamination for each.
Can planners be used as reading records?
Our primary school diaries can be partly, or entirely a reading record. Reading records are a great way of making reading an enjoyable, daily habit.
Adding reading record pages to your Primary School Planners will support literacy at Key Stages 1 and 2 through positive reinforcement and helping to identify areas of progression or concern.
How can I use a planner as a homework diary?
Homework at primary school level can be a great way to introduce independent study skills while engaging parents in their child’s education. As well as homework diary pages, include tips on how parents can best support their child with homework tasks and how to help to manage learning outside of school.
A homework diary is a great way to build a strong home-school relationship with more open communication.
