Dinosaur Dome
On Thursday 23rd January the Dinosaur dome visited. The children have to climb inside the Dome, where it is very dark.  The Dome took up nearly the whole hall. The children  learnt all about different dinosaurs, why dinosaurs are extinct and the food that the dinosaurs ate.

Project Hook


The children arrived at school to a parcel, the box said the contents were fragile and that it needed to be opened with care. We  unwrapped the box to find an egg with a set of instructions to follow. We added the egg to water and waited to find that a dinosaur had hatched over night. The children were very excited.

How does Tapestry work? 

Staff have iPads in the classroom with the Tapestry app on them. Each member of staff has a unique login to enable them to access the pupils. When an adult observes your child making a step in their learning they write an observation and a photo/ video maybe attached.

How can parents/carers use Tapestry? 

You can write a positive comment or give positive feedback about the learning taking place or add anything that you feel could add more insight into the observation. You can upload any photographs or short videos of a family day out, your child riding a bike, reading a book at home or a religious celebration. If you have any queries about logging in or your child's journal then you can book an appointment with Miss Archer or Miss Bennett.


How can I access Tapestry? 

You will have a unique username and password.

https://tapestryjournal.com or you can download the app on all smartphones.
