DON’T FORGET TO KEEP READING!
Early Years Bulletin Board
Check this page regularly for Early Years updates.
This week we are off to Easton Farm Park. Please look on Tapestry for important information about what you will need to bring on the day.
Please make sure you have your P.E. kits in school as we will be changing for P.E. over the summer term. Please make sure your child has a pair of trainers or plimsols that fit and are suitable for running in. Long hair needs to be tied up and earrings should be removed on P.E days (Tuesday).
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
Please make sure you check Parentmail for regular updates regarding school procedures. As you know we can’t take messages on the door so please continue to email us on the firstname.lastname@example.org email address before 8:30 with any messages you may have.
Remember that ALL children have a purple mash login code in the back of their reading diaries if you’re unable to find your laminated card.
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. Please do not share photos from Tapestry on social media. If you have any questions about Tapestry please come and speak to Mrs Bennett, Mrs Allen or Miss Smith
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)!
