Stay and Play Sessions
Unfortunately we cannot hold any ‘stay and play’ sessions at the moment due to the current pandemic. We hope these will be up and running soon.
If parents can please look at ‘memos’ on Tapestry for extra information regarding phonics and I will be adding some maths information this half term.
Daily videos and planning will be put onto the Tapestry application. Please have a look at ‘memos’ once you have logged into your account.

Long Term Plan
Helping my child to get ready to start school
The Early Years Consultants have produced this useful guidance for parents and carers, to help prepare children for starting school. Please find attached above. Even after your child has returned to school, you may find some of the strategies useful.
