Dear Parents/Carers, 


As you are aware we are going through some very uncertain times. I just want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to best support your children's education in these times of difficulty. The EYFS team at Tottington Primary School are very much missing the children from Reception and we hope you are all keeping safe. I would like to refer you to use the Tapestry Journal to receive up to date information for your children's learning. As of Monday 6th of April we will update Tapestry daily with a Maths, Literacy and Phonics challenge from each of your teachers. We would love to see what you are getting up to and encourage you to upload any work or fun pictures to Tapestry. When this is all over it will be lovely to have a journey of your child's learning in Reception. 


Whilst we will be setting daily challenges please continue to use 'Bug Club' and your own imagination as we have loved seeing the lovely things you have been getting up to.


Take care!


The Reception Team

Thank you to all our lovely Reception children for making us this wonderful video. It certainly brought a tear to our eyes. We miss you all and can't wait to see you soon xx

Our curriculum changes regularly in accordance with children’s interests. Our learning areas are also resourced to enhance this provision.


We regularly update Tappestry, our online learning journal, with photos of the amazing things your child does in school. If you could please also add any photos from home of your child’s achievements or anything they have done outside of school that they would like to share with their friends.


Overall the EYFS staff at Tottington primary want all our children to do the best they can, feel safe and be happy and confident. We also hope that you will enjoy working in partnership with us to help your child aim high.
