Welcome to Nightingales




Important Tapestry Update - As you may be aware changes were made to the Early Years Foundation Stage framework at the beginning of the academic year. These changes have meant we have changed how Tapestry is used within the classroom. Moving forward we will be making one post to summarise the children's learning from the week. This will be posted on a Friday. 



Welcome to Foundation!

Teacher- Mrs Clarke

TA- Mrs Khan



Just a quick reminder, that now the weather is getting significantly warmer, please may we ask that your child brings a named sunhat, water bottle and has sun-cream applied before school.
