Tapestry: We have emailed you all a link from Tapestry to enable you to download your child’s Learning Journal in the form of a PDF. You need to save or print the journal. The link will expire on August 12th. If you have any problems come and see us and we can help. In September your child’s account will no longer be active. Thank you for all the brilliant observations that you have posted on your child’s account. It has been great to share them with the rest of the class.

Reading books: Please find a quiet time and place to listen to your child read. Ask them questions about the story such as who are the main characters, what do you think might happen next or ask them to retell the story in their own words.

Please make a comment in your child’s reading record when you have listened to your child read. Thank you

Mini Mile: Every day the Reception children and staff join together to have a ‘run around the block’, which entails a run around the Oak and Maple buildings in the school grounds. The aim is to keep us fit and active and to promote healthy living. We have some super fast runners in Reception!

Boxes and cartons for modelling

If you have any boxes, cartons, tubes, fabric etc. that are suitable for model making please can you put them in the special bins outside our classrooms. The children have the opportunity to make models every week so we would really appreciate any recyclable materials. Thank you

If you will be available to support us at any point this year, please see the office to complete a DBS check as it is not possible for you to accompany us without one. You will also need to do an induction with Mrs Gannon. Thank you again for your amazing support.

Coats and bags

Please make sure that your child has a coat at school everyday as we  go outside in all weathers. The only bag that your child needs to bring into school at the moment is the red book bag, which can be purchased from the school office. Please do not bring in any large back packs as we do not have the space to store them. Also the children should not be bringing in any toys from home.
