"What to expect, when?"
Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum.

Online Learning Journal "Tapestry"
While your child is at school with us in their Reception Year, we use an online learning journal called Tapestry. This is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. It builds up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us. You as parents and carers are asked to join and access this Journal and add to it yourselves, just like we do at school! The Reception Class is the last year in the Foundation stage and it is important to build up a complete rounded picture of your child at school and at home. This information then feeds into the assessment at the end of the year against the Early Learning Goals.
(Further information about Tapestry will be sent out to you when your child starts with us in September but in the meantime if you would like to look into it further click on the picture link below.)
