The Learning Journey reward chart and certificates

Learning Journey reward chart
Support your child's Learning Journey with these fantastic motivational resources – a colourful reward chart where you can set your own challenges and choose rewards together, and printable certificates to celebrate success.

Everyone needs a little praise! If your child is about to start the Learning Journey, why not use the reward chart to keep them motivated and on track. It is designed so you can personalise them with your child's name and with challenges and rewards you've decided on together.

The Learning Journey reward chart

You can use the reward chart to set goals and challenges for your child and decide on rewards together. Simple print it out and then sit with your child to fill it in together. Make sure you start with some small, easily achievable goals with equally small rewards, and then build up to something big. Why not buy some stickers for your child to use when they complete a challenge?

We've got lots of ideas for challenges and rewards – and they don't have to cost you a penny!
