We hope you are all well and staying safe.
It has been lovely to see what you have been doing on Tapestry.
I will be uploading activities for you to do with your child on Tapestry using the memo section. You will be notified by email when a new memo has been uploaded. The memos can only be seen on the browser and not yet through the app, although they are trying to make this possible.
If you are unable to access Tapestry successfully please use the email address below and we will help you to gain access.

In addition to the activities posted on Tapestry there is a useful website you may wish to access with you child. It does say it is for Reception children but nursery children will be able to comfortably use the website as it does have differentiated activities. The clips are rather long so I suggest that you watch it in smaller chunks. Remember when practising the writing and letters that we teach the children to write in a cursive manner like the website ‘letter join’ (see below).
Our topic for this half term is plants. This week I would like you to have a look at the carrot top experiment and try it out for yourselves. To extend the experiment try putting one on the windowsill without water to see what happens. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/children/grow-carrot-tops.htm Please post the results on Tapestry, it would be lovely to see how they have grown.
We as a school subscribe to this website to enable your child to practise making patterns and letters. This can be accessed using a tablet. https://www.letterjoin.co.uk/ User Name: moldgreen_1 Password: nursery.
We understand that this can be a stressful time so we asking that you have fun with your children and only complete the activities that you feel able to do. You and your child’s emotional well-being is our priority.
Please use the email below if you would like any support or are having problems with Tapestry.
We look forward to seeing all the fantastic work you do and remember to email us if you need any further help or advice.
