Also working in Elm will be Miss Harris (teacher on Fridays), Mrs Molloy and Miss Velzian.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will come into school in their PE kit on PE days.
Children will enter and leave school using the yellow gate onto the Reception outdoor area.
In the first few weeks of term, your child will choose a library book to take home and share with you. Please read this book or one of your favourites from home together each night.
Our First Week
During the first week we will be focussing on familiarising the children with daily routines and rules. Children will learn how to use the different areas of the classroom, how to work with their peers and how to listen to and follow instructions.
Star of the Week
Tapestry is an online learning platform and app which is used to create a record of a child's journey through their early years.Teachers, early years practitioners and parents all contribute to their child's record using photos, written comments and videos. 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,
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.
