Year 1 Transition

The Year 1 staff have created a 'Welcome to Year 1' newsletter to share with your child - please have a look it together over the summer.

Reception Bubble Pop

If your child needs to isolate, you will have been contacted by now.


Please login to your Tapestry account tomorrow morning (Tuesday 29th June) to access the learning posts for the week (new posts with activities/videos, will be added throughout the week).


You will need to 'like' the 'Good Morning' Tapestry post to register your child's attendance each day by 10am.


You may also visit the 'Home Learning - Bubble Pop' star below to access additional website links and ideas.


If you have any questions, please use the Reception email address.


Thank you for your understanding and support,

Welcome Back to School! (March 2021)

We are all very excited to be back at school and have settled into our own classes beautifully.  We have explored the areas, played with some new toys and resources and loved being back with our friends and teachers.  Just have a look!  We have added further pictures in our class photo folders below.

World Book Day

We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day - even if it was at home, we loved showing our costumes and sharing our favourite stories on Zoom!

School Closure - Learning from Home

We are all saddened to hear about the latest government announcements with regards to schools closing, however, we want to assure you that as your child's teachers, we will be supporting you through the whole period. While this will be a difficult change for many of us, we know that it is in the best interest of our community's health and wellbeing.  


We will update this webpage once a week with the home learning plan.  All other updates, resources and videos will be posted on Tapestry (including the plan).  Please log in to your Tapestry account each morning to 'like' our class good morning post to acknowledge you have seen it.  


Information regarding our phonics scheme 'Read Write Inc.' will be available on this webpage and on Tapestry - please check them daily.


As a way of keeping in touch with you and your child throughout lockdown, we strongly encourage you to post photographs, videos and observations of your child so we can see them engaging in our weekly activities. These observations will become part of your child's learning journal. In the early years, quality play experiences are essentials to your child's development and the activities we have planned are designed to support this.


We are still your child's teacher and their education and wellbeing are of upmost importance to us, as it is to you as parents.  We send our best wishes to you and your family - as we say at Springfield 'Together we are a Team!'


If you have any individual queries or questions regarding your child please continue to use the email address: specifying your child's name and class.


We will also attach some additional useful links and resources in the Home Learning section below.

Reception Christmas Recording

The Reception Christmas poem recording is now available to view in Tapestry.  We hope you enjoy it!  May we remind you to not share any images or footage from Tapestry on social media.

We are very proud of how well the children have settled in to school life at Springfield. Hopefully, by now, you have activated your Tapestry account and have viewed observations and photos from us. We have enjoyed seeing the special moments and achievements that you have shared from home. Please do continue to share these with us via Tapestry. Don't forget you can also click on the 'like' icon as well as adding a comment. 

Springfield Reading Information Presentation

We have now uploaded an informative presentation about how we teach reading at Springfield on Tapestry. Please log in to your account to view it. This replaces the reading meeting that we would have normally held in school in the Autumn Term.

Dough Disco

To develop our fine motor skills the children have been taking part in Dough Disco sessions. Ask your children about it and maybe try at home. Please click on the music link below:

Reception Fund

Thank you so much to those of you who have already given generously to our Reception Fund, it has already been spent on extra resources for the classroom such as individual pots of playdough and topic enhancements. Any donations are appreciated, please continue to send your contributions in with your child. They love putting those coins in the money box!

Staggered start times for week 1

Please ensure you check your emails, as Zoom meeting schedules are being sent out this week.
