Please do sign up for a tapestry account if you haven't already done so.  With a Tapestry account you will be able to observe your child's learning as soon as the  teachers upload them to your account.  You will also be able to upload any photographs or videos that you would like to share with your child's teacher - the children enjoy sharing things they do at home with the class. 


If you have any queries about the Tapestry account or if you would like to sign up please ask you child's class teacher.  




Our PE days will be as follows:

It was great to see so many of you at our Phonics and Reading Workshop.  If you did miss it we have uploaded the powerpoint here for you to look at and if you have any further questions we are only to happy to help. Mrs Fry

All About me!

The children have been learning all about themselves.  They started school with a treasure box that they made and filled at home during the summer holidays.  In class the children have shared their all about me boxes with each other and with the adults - we have learnt so much about each other! We have also been creating portraits, washing babies, playing in role, and working together as we have made new friends and settled into their school routines. 

We went to the building site and stood in our new classroom. We even saw them pouring cement for the new floor!
