(week Commencing 23rd March 2020)

Hi Doves and parents!


We hope you are all keeping well. Thank you for all of your support and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Within the home learning packs we aimed to provide a mixture of activities that parents can support with but also ones children could tackle on their own, along with other active suggestions to help get you outside in your garden. It will take some adjusting to and the children will also benefit from plenty of play too - learning through play is an essential part of the EYFS curriculum so please don't feel too pressured to complete lots of work sheets. 


We will both be checking Tapestry regularly and responding to any activities you post. smiley With that in mind we have resent any activation emails for those parents who have not yet activated their account to view our observations. Please do email the office if you are still facing any problems with this, it will come through to us and we will try to resolve any issues. 


We will update this class page with further activities to either print out (if possible for you) or suggestions and websites to keep your learning going.  


We are missing our little doves! Looking forward to seeing what you get up to on Tapestry - stay safe and we hope to see you soon!!
