Children will bring home a reading book every Thursday for you to keep at home and share every night over the weekend. The reading book must come back into school on Monday so we can hear your child read and if we feel they are ready for the next book / stage we will change their book ready for Wednesday. Any books returned late, may not be changed. Please use your child’s reading record to communicate about how your child has got on with reading the book at home each time they bring a book home. If no comments are made in the reading record we will think the child hasn’t read and they will bring the same book home to repeat.
Please don’t let your child play with the outside toys or on the grass before school and ensure they dismount scooters at the school gates.
Donations – we are in need of large pieces of netting to enable us to den build in our outdoor learning environment. All donations are very much appreciated!
