Only One You!

Welcome Penguin and Seal followers!

Thank you for visiting our class pages. It is here where you will find all the latest news on what Penguins and Seals have been learning each week. 

We are very proud of the way all the children have settled into their new classes and have been learning new routines. We have talked about our class codes, how to keep safe in many different ways (including visits from our local PCSO and lollipop lady) and most importantly how to share and be a good friend. 

We have already been getting to know your child and have been observing their learning using our online learning diaries ‘Tapestry’. This week we will be adding your relative accounts, so keep an eye out for an activation email which will ask you to set up a password. 

You can access Tapestry online on a computer http://tapestryjournal.com or you can download the app if you have a smart phone or tablet. Online through the website you enter your username and password as a parent login and on the app you can use your chosen PIN number that you have set up. Any problems or questions please come and see us, we will be happy to help. 

On Friday we had a Parent/Carer fundraising event with our children and families to create an “Only One You” pathway of pebbles, in our shared EYFS area. The event was based around the book “Only One You” book by Linda Kranz that celebrates and values individuality and the special partnership between a parent and a child. 

Together the children with their Parents/Carers painted their own pebble to help make a colourful pathway which symbolises the individual journey our children take from nursery, pre-school and into reception. When the pebbles are dry we will varnish them and then the children will choose a place to lay their own pebble. Please come and have a look once it’s finished.

We really appreciate your support and will certainly be doing some more fundraising family events throughout the academic year.

keep posted for more news next week!
