Reading books will be changed when you have signed your child's reading journal. Please send books in daily.
Homework journals need to be handed in on Mondays as they will be checked and a total of points earned will be recorded.
Please continue to encourage your child's independence and leave them to come in to the classrooms on their own.
Children will have Gymnastics on a Tuesday and Ball Games on a Friday. Please can you provide a suitable indoor kit for your child? The PE kit can be left in school.
