Using a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry Journal’ every child in Nursery and Reception at Sir Thomas Abney have their own individual online learning journal. Parents are sent login details when their child starts at Sir Thomas Abney.
Tapestry online learning journeys allow parents to view their child’s observations and photographs from their time at Sir Thomas Abney, almost as they happen! The school will also reference a child’s learning to the Early Years Foundation Stage profile. This keeps parents informed of the areas of learning in which their child is achieving and the age band they were working in for the observed activity.
In April 2020 we started using “Google Classroom” to support children’s learning. If your child does not have an account this will be set up for them and you will be notified of their Class Code in order for them to join their Google Classroom. For those who are already logged in, they will receive their new Google Classroom Code in order to access learning materials.
Parents of Year 4 classes will be emailed a Zoom invite to join the ‘Meet the Teacher’ session. This is another opportunity to meet the classroom staff. Teachers will explain routines, what the children will be learning this year and how to communicate with teachers.
