Welcome to Nursery
We use Tapestry, an online learning journal to help teachers and parents records the progress of our children in Nursery and Reception.
If you have completed the form, you can logon using this link.
What is Tapestry?
Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal where teachers record photos, observations and comments, for parents to see at home.
This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children's play and learning in and outside of the classroom.
How does Tapestry work?
Tapestry provides each individual child with their own Learning Journal held online, only you can see your child's journal no other parents will be able to see your child's journal. Parents and carers are given their own log-in using their email and password (which is pre-set by us but can be changed by you to make it more secure). All EYFS staff are also given a secure log-in.
Then both you and our staff can then upload observations, photos or videos; recording children's achievements and assessing their learning in reference to the curriculum.
How do I get a login for my child?
At the start of each year we automatically create you a Tapestry account using the email address you have provided during the enrollment process. Once created, you will receive an email from Tapestry asking you to complete the setup by creating a secure password and PIN. If you do not supply an email address, we will be unable to create you a Tapestry account.
If you require any more information, you can either speak to your child's teacher or the school office.
This interactive maths area displays the current numbers that children are learning. There are interactive elements to the display allowing children to come and practise counting and recognising the focus numbers. The area is bright, has a range of vocabulary and resources that are attractively displayed and inviting to children.
This outdoor role play area has been created to support the current theme of learning. A range of keywords and pictures are available. There are opportunities for children to play in role as Jungle explorers. Time has been spent setting the area up to reflect the jungle explorer theme, any pieces of furniture that don’t fit the area have been removed or covered over – fridge etc.
We have been enjoying learning all about capacity using water, filling, half filling and emptying containers.
It was a rather windy Wellie Wednesday today, but that didn't stop the Nursery children from exploring. Today we made nature bracelets, built a camp, found mini beasts and acted scenes from The Gruffalo! We also enjoyed a hot chocolate drink to warm us up.
Our theme in Nursery this week is our bodies and today we practiced moving our bodies in different ways in the Nursery garden. We built an obstacle course using planks and tyres, crawled under arches, bounced on the space hopper and tried walking while balancing bean bags on our heads!
