Library books and reading books are changed weekly. 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.What is most important is that your child has a book to read. Please either send me a note or catch me at the end of the day.
Please 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 Mondays and Thursdays, please ensure that your child has a full PE kit, so that your child can participate.
Homework will go out on a Wednesdays and we will expect it to be in the following Monday.
