As governments and schools reflect in order to decide on how to plan the catch up on lost learning over the last 12 months there are new voices and opinions being added to the mix. Any attempt to address this gap needs to be realistic and not over ambitious, otherwise the plan will fail. In this BBC article researchers, at the Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research and Data under Dr Foster, surveyed young people about their home learning experiences. Her conclusion and proposal going forward was that “There’s a lot of logic in saying that maybe we should just be identifying what young people need to progress and focusing on filling in those particular gaps, rather than trying to chuck everything at them and expecting them to do two years in one.” This approach to making small steps around key gaps and not putting too much pressure on children or teachers is probably a wise one, as doing too much could push a lot of youngsters into a very stressed and and depressed situation which would be counterproductive.
