The Home and School Journal has been a vehicle to build more regular communication between the student, teacher and the parents. This project explains the journey toward the implementation of the project with a literature review, the history of the project, a detailed look at the practical procedures used and new additions which have emerged from journalling. This five-year project has been successful in building better communication between the child, the teacher and the home, increasing the child's ownership of his/her learning, increasing parental awareness of what has been significant for their child on a weekly basis at school and is a permanent document which shows the progress and experiences of that year.
