We use the Interactive Learning Journey software 'Tapestry' to assist and assess recording of each Reception child's progress towards the Early Learning Goals. Tapestry allows children, parents and teachers to work closely together. Parents can access the Tapestry log-in page by clicking on Tapestry log-in.
 
At Keevil we encourage cursive writing right from the start. Although it looks complicated, it is actually much easier because all the lower case letters start with a dot on the line. This will later help the children to join their letters (a Year 2 expectation) with ease and without learning different letter movements. We encourage all writing to be in lower case form to begin with, not capital letters. Guidance can be found below along with some other some useful websites to help with your learning at home:
