Reading at home
Please read your child’s reading book with them at least 3 times a week, and remember to write in their reading diary. Their books will be changed whenever they need a new book. The children can win certificates and rewards for regular reading.
Spellings will be sent home on a Monday. Please find some time to practice these spellings at home with your child, ready for a weekly spelling check on Friday morning.
We will do PE on Tuesdays or Thursday, swapping with Mr Allen. Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school, with their name in. If your child has earrings, these must be taken out or covered up by yourself before your child comes to school.
If you have any worries or concerns then please don’t hesitate to speak to us, we are always available at the end of the day to answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, you can make an appointment to see us with Mrs. Nicholls at the front office.
