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.

  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be back in by the following Wednesday.
  • Our PE day is Friday remember to wear your PE kits on these days.
  • Please bring in water bottles daily.
  • We will have a music lesson every Wednesday afternoon so musical instruments must be brought in every week.
