Dear Parents

The Early Years are a very important time for your child in their development. Children make the most progress when they learn through play. At home, make sure you are providing lots of first hand opportunities to enhance their learning. This could be by model making, cooking, gardening, collecting natural objects, painting, Arts and crafts, cutting and sticking. Read with your child every day, books for pleasure, books of their choice and information books. I will post websites and worksheets for you to access the Early Year Curriculum. Keep in touch with me by Tapestry. Upload photos and observations of your child and I will check it everyday. Keep Safe and have fun with your children during this difficult time.

Mrs. Darkin

You can contact me via Tapestry or (please note that I am working in school on Mondays and Tuesdays and so response may be slower on those days)

A big thank you to all the children who have been working so hard.
