Due to the recent announcements this week in regards to Covid 19 and the uncertainty around pregnant women and the virus I am unfortunately having to self isolate. I am busy working from home and hoping that I can still help as much as I can!
Due to the on-going assessments of schools we have decided to set work for the children to be completed from home if the case is that the school is advised to close.
We will be uploading lots of links to useful websites, online resources and personal tasks for the children onto our class page. We understand that this will be a hard time for you to keep the children occupied and we hope that all this extra information helps.
As many of you know, we use the app ‘Tapestry’ within Reception to monitor and observe the children. Personally, I believe that this is a fantastic way to show people at home what the children have been doing within school. Tapestry can also be used for parents to upload work created by their children at home. The tasks that we set can be recorded on tapestry and sent to us to look at and comment on. You should have an ‘add observation’ link on your tapestry profile where you can add photos/videos/comments about the activities that your child is completing at home. You can choose your own activities to complete such as baking, building, independent writing and number work etc. There will also be daily tasks on the website in term time that the children can complete and you can upload onto tapestry for myself to see and comment on.
If you have any queries or questions please don’t hesitate to contact the school whilst we are open. Staff can then pass on information to me and I will be very happy to help where I can. I would love to see updates from the children at home during the next few weeks. Keep safe and I hope to see you all again soon!

Five top tips for parents when uploading onto tapestry.
Reception and Year 1 had a fantastic time at Walby Farm Park. The children were all very well behaved and had beautiful manners.
A super day had by all!
Reception have been learning all about the story of the Gingerbread Man. This afternoon they baked their own Gingerbread Man!
They measured out ingredients, rolled and cut the men out and then they decorated them.
The children were very excited to see that the Gingerbread men hadn't escaped from the oven!
Reception have had a fantastic first week in school. All of the children have settled in beautifully. They have been building with the Lego, constructing farm yards, creating master pieces, exploring the home corner and much more.
We are looking forward to the next year together.
