Helping your child at home

Helping your child at home

In Nursery, children are encouraged to complete a homework challenge set twice a half term. The homework challenge is sent out with children on the Nursery newsletter. Once completed, children can bring in their homework and it will be kept in the child’s individual folder.


In Early Years, we use Tapestry which is an online system of recording your child’s learning in Nursery. A massive advantage of this system is that you can instantly add your own comments to entries, add your own entries of your child’s learning at home and can show your child’s online book to members of the family.
