Welcome to Knotty Ash EYFS September 2020


Hello to all my Nursery families,


Apologies for this update not coming sooner, we have been busy behind the scenes trying to get everything ready for your children joining us or returning in a few weeks. This is a little 'Welcome to EYFS' message to introduce ourselves and give you some more information you may require for your little ones returning or joining us in September.


You should have by now, received an email invite from Seesaw, our online communication, learning and assessment tool, asking you to connect to your child’s journal. If you haven’t, or are struggling getting set up, then please email our office at and we will do our best to get you up and running.


Seesaw is not only a communication platform but an electronic assessment tool that will be used daily in school to record and share observations of your child with you. This is a lovely way to discuss with your child what they may have been up to that day and also provide 'next steps' for further support at home. This platform not only allows you to interact with school and see what your child is up to regularly but to also share what you and your child are up to at home. We may also set work for your child to do at home which means you need to make sure you have the 'Seesaw Class' app as well as the ‘Seesaw Family’ app. I will send out your child's log in codes once you have the Family app set up.


A ‘Welcome’ video which includes essential information regarding your child starting in September, is available for you to watch via the link below. It is important you view this video to ensure your child is prepared for their start in September. If you have any queries or questions after the video then please do not hesitate to contact me via Seesaw. I will endeavour to get back to you as quickly as I can however, if it is urgent or you wish to discuss any issues in more detail then we ask that you use the usual contact –


Please also find below, a form regarding your situation during lockdown. We would appreciate if you could fill this in and bring it with them in September, as it will help with your child's transition to school. There is also an 'All about me' page for your child to do and bring on their first day. This will also be on Seesaw for the children to create or if it is more suitable, feel free to print out or maybe even let your child draw their response. You will also find a parent's guide to EYFS and our long term plan for you to see what your child will be up to throughout the year. All this information will be in more detail on the video.


We’re really excited and looking forward to meeting and welcoming the children soon and being able to share their learning journey with you.


Mrs Davies

Update for Nursery intake - September 2020


Welcome to all our new and returning Nursery families.


This is your class page and where you will find any new updates and information throughout the summer before receiving your Seesaw log in details. For those that aren't family with Seesaw, it is a home and school communication tool and great for keeping up to date with your child's learning journey throughout the school year. Details on this will be sent out over the coming weeks so please don't worry, we will help you set everything up before your child returns in September. 


Please watch the link below with your child to introduce them to the staff they will be with in September. 


Any enquiries in the meantime then please contact our school office on


Hope you have a wonderful summer and we'll see you soon.
