Tapestry and EYFS

Tapestry is an easy-to-use innovative, interactive online learning journal which we use to record, track and celebrate children's progress in early years education.

For more information on this, the Early Years Foundation Parents Guide and other learning resources please click on the logo below.

This is a fantastic way to find out more about our school day and to see what the children learn. We love to get you as parents involved too, uploading photos and video from home and by commenting on the learning your children achieve. We aim to work with you, as a team, to support your children to achieve their best.


The Lempen Puppet Theatre

We loved the performance of 'The Fisher and his Wife' from the Skipton based Puppet Theatre. So much so we made our own wishing fish!
