General Information

Reading diaries

These books are used as a home to school communication  and need to be brought in everyday. These diaries are looked at everyday by a member of staff and any accidents or incidences will be reported in these books for your information.


Library day is Wednesday, please return your child's library book every Wednesday even if you would like to keep it as it will need to be signed out every week.

Please share a book with your child everyday and record this in your reading diaries. If you have recorded reading in your diaries everyday the next week your child will be put into a draw and may win a book to take home and keep. 


In the spring term reading books and book talk book bags will be handed out to children on Wednesdays, each week the children will either get a reading book or a book talk bag. They will be changed once a week at the same time as the library books. 


PE will be on Tuesday, this can sometimes changed to staff training so we suggest you keep your child's PE kit in school all week.


Forest school will be on Tuesday and wellies and waterproofs are needed as we will go out in all kinds of weather.


Home Learning 

Home learning activities will be sent home as stickers in the first week of each half term. We expect at least 1 piece of home learning to be shared on Tapestry or brought in each week. Feel free to do more with your child. 



At St-Margaret's we don't have paper Learning Journeys we use an online site called Tapestry. You will need to update your Tapestry app, you were given a sheet on how to do that at the end of Autumn term, but if you are having any problems please feel free to see a member of the EYFS staff to help you. This site allows you to share videos and pictures of any experience you and your child experiences outside of school, and not forgetting their home learning.

Our classroom has gone through another transformation to provide opportunities for your children to explore and discover lots about this new learning project.

The children made actions to go with the story map .

The children will make their own story map, then they will change some of the characters and eventually the children then will have a go at writing their own story.
