This week we are learning about babies. Please find our weekly 'What we are Learning' letter below:
P.E lessons take place outside (weather permitting) or in the gym every Thursday afternoon. On a Thursday, please send your child to school in their P.E kit, which they can stay in for the day. Please ensure your child is warm enough, wearing black jogging bottoms/leggings, a white t-shirt, trainers and their school jumper/cardigan.
When your child is ready for a reading book, they will be given a book and a diary. Please comment in the diary so that we know your child has read at home. We change reading books on a Monday and Thursday only.
Tapestry builds a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education. Using photos, videos and diary entries, a teacher or early years practitioner, along with the child’s parents, ‘weaves’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey. All information held in the platform is stored securely, and can be downloaded and shared as required. Parents are able to view online their child’s progress and how much fun they’re having, whilst also uploading their own comments and media.
The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential. The Tapestry online learning journal is also available as an easy-to-use, secure app, meaning capturing key learning moments, and videoing milestones are even easier.
If you have not returned the Tapestry Home/School Agreement please ask a member of the Reception team for another copy of the letter. All parents who have returned the agreement should have received an activation email. If you cannot find this in your inbox, it may have filtered into your junk mail. If you have not received an activation email for Tapestry, please let us know and we will resend the invitation.
In the event of a school closure, due to Covid-19, Tapestry will be our primary means of communication. It is important to us that we have all families fully signed up and able to use their accounts. If you need any help at all with setting up or using Tapestry, please don't hesitate to ask.
