VIRTUAL SCHOOL

Our virtual school remains live and will be used to provide learning resources to those who are unable to attend school as a result of illness, isolation or any other reason. Furthermore, the materials found on the Virtual School pages may be used by any child for additional learning and who is keen to extend their learning at home. CLICK HERE TO VISIT

our topic is: Are carrots orange?

What do you like to eat? Are you happy to try something new? We will explore these questions and more in our brand new topic about eating well and being healthy. We will learn about different types of food as well as the healthy eating plate. Throughout this topic, we will share lots of stories about healthy eating, fruits and vegetables as well as exploring information texts. We will also find out where our food comes from before it gets to the supermarkets. We will even get the chance to take part in a variety of cooking experiences. In addition, we will learn more about growing fruits and vegetables and maybe even grow our own! We will explore minibeasts and their natural habitats including creating a worm farm and looking after some caterpillars. We are hoping for some glorious weather and will be spending lots of times outside so please ensure the children are dressed correctly for nice weather. 

Tapestry

Tapestry is your child’s online learning journal. It is where we share your child learning in school and is also a place where you can share what has been happening at home. It is particularly important that you share what they have been doing at home when your child is the ‘Focus Child’. If you are unable to access your child’s Tapestry account, please speak to the school office or the class teacher.

Don’t forget to share these activities with us on Tapestry!

Attendance and Punctuality

Good attendance and punctuality is essential to help your child achieve the best they
possibly can. The best attendees each term are invited to take part in an exciting event.  

Tapestry online learning journal

We love seeing what your child is doing at home on Tapestry.

It would be brilliant if you could share as many learning experiences with your child as possible, based on what we are learning about in class. If you do this, we would love to see what you have been doing on Tapestry. You can log onto Tapestry and upload pictures and write a summary of what you have been doing. This will then be added to your child’s online learning journal.

stamps

Children can achieve reward stamps for trying hard with their work! Every time they collect 50 stamps, they are awarded with a certificate.

uniform and jewellery

Please ensure children wear the correct school uniform, including black shoes and plain socks. Jewellery must not be worn. Please label all items so that they can be easily reacquainted with children if they are mislaid. This includes the inside of coats, shoes, hats, gloves and scarves.

snack

We aim to teach the children about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. With this in mind, our fantastic chef provides a range of healthy snacks. Snack for infants is charged at £1.50 per week.
To pay for your child's snack, please log in to their Scopay account. Please speak to the office if you do not have your Scopay log in details.

school meals

We are committed to providing excellent food that is healthy, tasty, nutritionally balanced and is presented in an attractive way that the children will enjoy. A School Dinner is currently provided Free for Reception
