Evidence Me

 All parents/carers should have received an email from 'Evidence Me' asking you to set up the password for your account. From here it is super easy to use. You can download the app or view your child's observations through any web browser. This portal is also the best way for you to send in your own snapshots from home. We love to share our experiences from home, in school, so please do send them in!

Important dates/ things to remember:

Reading Books:

Reading Books will be changed on a Monday and  Wednesday. 

Read, Write Inc books will be assigned to your child each Thursday through Oxford Reading Tree's elibrary. 

Library books will also be provided so you can enjoy a wide range of different stories and structures. 

 

Please ensure your child always brings a pair of wellies (to stay in school) and a waterproof coat every day as we go outside no matter the weather. 

Remember to check your Evidence Me accounts every Friday to see all the exciting things your child has been up to throughout the week. 

If you ever have any queries or concerns, big or small, please do email me at moughan@whitley.n-yorks.sch.uk and I will endeavor to respond as soon as possible. 

We have recently transferred over to Read, Write, Inc. Phonics.

Here are some ways to support your child reading at home. 

Optional Weekend Challenges (Reception and Year 1) - I wonder...

Each week/fortnight we will give your child an 'I wonder...' question to explore both at home and in school. This will spark discussions, problem solving and inquiries into the world around us and why things happen/occur. We hope you can also investigate this at home too and send in your own discussions/findings through Evidence Me. 

 

Spring 1...

I wonder... Why is it so cold? Where have all the leaves gone?

I wonder... What is the weather like? How does it change with the seasons?
Can you create your own weather station/report?

I wonder... what happens to our teeth if we don't brush them?
