Nursery Weekly Update

We have had a very busy few weeks of settling in at Nursery. They have all come in amazingly and are very busy making friends and have enjoyed exploring all of the different areas of the classroom and playground.

You may remember from your home visits that we talked about recording your child’s progress electronically using an App called ‘Tapestry’. This is an electronic way for us to observe, assess and track your children. We can even add photos and videos. Another brilliant aspect of the App is that parents can access their children’s learning journals on a regular basis, viewing observations, photos and videos and also being able to leave comments. Parents are notified by email once a new observation is added by a member of the team. It really is fantastic and we hope you will join us in our enthusiasm to ensure that it is an effective method of documenting your child’s progress and an opportunity for you to be involved in your child’s learning. Please check  your emails for an invitation to sign up for Tapestry, as we have uploaded a number of observations already!
