Library books are changed every Thursday. Please make sure your child has their book as they enjoy choosing new books. If anything has happened to their book, just let me know.
Reading books are changed each week, please ensure you have signed your child's reading record. Please also make it a habit to read with your child and to ask them open-ended questions such as 'Why do you think...?' so that your child can really elaborate on their answer and you can also see how much your child has understood the text.
This term our PE is on Thursdays, please ensure that your child has a full PE kit, so they can participate.
Homework will go out on Fridays and we will expect it to be in by the following Wednesday.
