We use tapestry in school to record your child's learning and to send messages and reminders. If you are not signed up or you are having any problems signing up to Tapestry, please speak to one of the adults who will be able to help you. 


Please share all of the wonderful things that you do at home with us via Tapestry, we love hearing about what the children do at home and this is so important. We would particularly like to hear about what your child enjoys doing at home and out of school.


This half-term our topic is called 'All About Me' so please send us any photos or information about your child's interests, their hobbies and achievements, their pets and who is in your family. 




Our PE day is a Wednesday. Your child will need a t-shirt, shorts/joggers and a pair of trainers. Your child can leave their PE kit at school on their peg. Please can you name all of your child's belongings.

Reading books are to be returned every Monday and your child will receive a new book on a Thursday. Please can you make sure that your child's reading record is signed. 


Please can you make sure all of your child's clothes and water bottles are clearly labelled.
