PM session Arrival 12:25 - Collection time 3:25pm (or 3pm if other siblings in school)
Please respect social distancing measures when dropping off or collecting children.
It is important that you leave the space outside school as soon as you have done so to enable another year group to use paths outside school easily.
Our aim at Greenwood is to provide quality learning for children both at home and at school. Each week, we will be uploading a weekly remote learning timetable to provide children with the best possible teaching and learning resources to support their continued learning at home.
Throughout Foundation Stage at Greenwood we use the online learning journal Tapestry to record your child's progress. On Tapestry you will find photos and comments about your child's learning. Children who are accessing remote learning should use this to upload photos/videos of activities being completed at home. If you are unable to access Tapestry, please get in touch with us and we will be able to help with this. Adding your photos helps us create a broader picture of each child and understand their strengths and interests, as well as anything that we can help develop.
We upload weekly activities to Purple Mash. Your child has their own individual log in details to access the activities on there. Please get in touch if you need help with log in details or accessing set activities.
Please continue to read to your child at home daily, and record this in their reading diaries. Reading regularly with your child helps develop vocabulary, creativity, understanding of the world and most importantly a long life love of books.
