Please ensure that your child has a named bottle with only water inside, we are a healthy school and promote children drinking water throughout the day.
Reading books are being sent home as part of their RWI lessons. We ask that they are read on 3 separate occasions, signed and then brought back into school to show your reading teacher. Please be aware that the class teacher may not also be the reading teacher - as they split and go to different groups for RWI.
Thank you for your continued support, if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.
