This week on Tapestry…..

Speech Link Parent portal 

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.

Reading Challenge
Image result for bookworm reading a book clipart 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!

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)!
