Good morning everyone and welcome to our new Reception class families!
Unfortunately we are not able to meet for our usual Intake meeting and our classroom visit this year. We would usually meet you to share our Intake PowerPoint and answer any questions you may have.
Therefore, I have attached the Intake meeting PowerPoint, which will hopefully provide you with all the information you require for September. If you have any further questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
UPDATES:We now have a New Reception Class 2020 blog on our school website. Here we will add further information to support your transition.https://blog.st-peters-farnworth.bolton.sch.uk/reception2020-21/
This month we would also be visiting your child in nursery, but unfortunately this is now not possible. So myself (Mrs Quarmby) and Mrs Cowell have spoken to your child’s nursery to talk about their transition and to learn more about them and their learning interests.
We have also created a new Tapestry account. Tapestry is an on line Journal where YR staff can keep in contact with you and your child over the next few weeks. It is a great way to share your child’s learning and interests with us and send us photos /videos, so we can get to know your child too.I know many nurseries already use this resource, so you will know how good it is. You will receive an email over the next couple of weeks, asking you to download the Tapestry app. If your child already uses Tapestry in Nursery, then unfortunately at this time you CAN NOT use the same email to log in and you will need to create a new temporary email address. If you need to create a new email address, then please could you let us know, so we can add this to our Tapestry account. If your child is not using tapestry in Nursery, then we will use the email address you have already provided to set up your account. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT TAPESTRY TO FOLLOW
We hope all this information will support your transition to St. Peter’s at this difficult time and we are really looking forward to meeting you all in the future. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your time
See you all soon. Mrs Quarmby & Mrs Cowell.
