Tapestry

I will be putting a consent form in your child's book bag today for you to fill in and return as soon as possible. With the details I will be able to set all parents up on Tapestry in the coming weeks. 

I will explain more about Tapestry and answer any questions in the class meeting next week.

Thank you for your support.

This half-term we are focusing on settling the children into school. Our theme is 'Super Me!' where we are combining our All About Me learning with Superheroes and looking at what our super powers are and what makes us individually special. 

Please see the 50 Things to do Before You are 5 document attached at the bottom of this page. Please upload any of these completed activities to Tapestry when your accounts are set up.
