Mrs Luffman's Learning through Stories


I thought I'd take some time out to read you all a story - one of the things I am missing most about our school closure. 
I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to do some fun activities whilst at home - bug hunting, designing your own silly shell or wonderful wings or anything else you can think of, don't forget to share them with us on Tapestry. #welovebooks #learningthroughstories

Dear Parents,


Please do remember during our school closure - however long it may be, to please keep in contact via your child's Tapestry account.

We would love to see what the children have been getting up to and really do want to keep in contact with them as much as possible. 

I am checking Tapestry daily, usually on many occasions, to find out what the children are doing and I will be marking and giving feedback to the children - just as their work and fun activities deserve. Any observations that go on Tapestry I can also add assessments to in order to keep their progress monitored.

Please upload observations, photographs, video clips or whatever you can, whenever you can - daily, weekly or just when you get chance. If you could give a little description with the media of what your child has been doing, and in particular if the work was independent or needed a little support in specific areas, that would really aid the assessments I add to each piece of work.

Thank you in advance and also thank you for all the uploads we have already received - we really do miss your children in class and it is lovely to still see them!

Keep happy, healthy and most importantly having fun!


Mrs Luffman
