  • Picture News on Tapestry

    date posted: 09/10/20

    Every week children will be asked to take part in ‘Picture News’ optional homework. ‘Picture News’ highlights current real life topics in a child friendly way. It gives children opportunities to develop learning through news stories that will hopefully inspire them. 

    A story will be shared every Friday on Tapestry with the children along with thought provoking questions to discuss at home. These stories will link to British values and will support children’s personal development. Post your answers in the comments box on Tapestry. 

    We hope ‘Picture News’ will give children the opportunity to learn about the world and develop respect for other people’s beliefs, feelings and faiths. We also hope children enjoy the opportunity to discuss their thoughts with their families.

    Dear Parents/Carers 

    Normally we would display on the classroom door an outline of what we will be learning in class for the coming week. At the moment, Rabbits and Squirrels parents are unable to wait at the classroom door so we will email this to you each week instead.

    Please find attached what we will be learning next week.

    Thank you and best wishes,

  • Welcome to our Reception page

    date posted: 30/09/20

    We are really pleased with how the Reception classes have settled into their new school routine. It has been wonderful to see them make new friends in their classes and enjoy coming to school everyday. We want to say a very big thank you to all of the parents for helping to settle their children really quickly and for following all of the new school rules!

    This half term our topic is 'Marvellous Me' and this gives us the opportunity to get to know your child really well. We have recently sent home 'Marvellous Me' bags that we have enjoyed sharing at school, so if you haven't brought your bag back, please do so soon. 

  • Cool Milk

    A reminder that if you would like your child to receive milk at school, you must renew your child's registration directly with Coolmilk to pay for this academic year.

    Register with Cool Milk

    Reception children do not need to register until they turn 5 years of age.

    At Burlington Infant and Nursery School, we use Tapestry to record the children's learning.  To help you learn how to set Tapestry up and use it, we've created a short video.
