Things to remember:

READING – this is your number one priority! Please try and read every night at home and record it in your reading record. Your book must be signed at least 3 x a week by an adult at home and this will be checked in school every week.

Short, regular reading sessions really make a difference to the progress your child makes.

Book bags should be brought into school on Monday and Friday only.
