Early Years Bulletin Board
Check your Tapestry account for any Early Years updates,
Remember P.E is on a Tuesday. We will be outside for P.E as much as possible this term so you may like to include a tracksuit in your child’s P.E. kit for colder days.
We have been fortunate enough to be granted access for parents to make use of the Speech Link Parent Portal information site until the end of term. The aim is to help promote speech and associated communication skills such as listening so children make progress in all areas of their life.
To access the portal click on https://speechandlanguage.info/parents
Many thanks for your continued support.
Parent Helpers Wanted!
At present, Parent Helpers will not be able to come into school. However, when this changes we will let you know, as in the past ….
Parent Helpers Welcome! We welcome parents into school, to help our children to improve their reading skills. If you are able to spare a morning or an afternoon, on a regular basis, please let your child’s teacher know. We are very appreciative of your additional support, and it makes a huge difference to the children’s learning. We would love you to come and join us! Tea and coffee provided too!
Learning at Home
We love to share your child’s learning with you on Tapestry.. We also like to see any learning you do at home. This app is able to be purchased through the app store and can be used on most smartphones and tablet devices. You can also access Tapestry through your web brower on the computer.

Don’t forget to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week! Your reading Challenge Slip must be returned on MONDAY MORNING so the ‘scores on the doors’ can be collated by class teachers during registration and sent to the school office. An Early Years class has never topped the leader board! We need 75% of our classes to read to meet Mrs Ashford’s challenge. Class Prizes available too. Come on EYFS let’s keep reading!
The Language of BAD
We want to be challenged at Trimley St Mary.
We have been using the language of BAD to extend our learning. We have been taking on challenges to show if we are brave, (paddling) adventurous (snorkeling) or daring (diving)!
