General Information

Reading -  We expect children to be reading every day and for parents to sign their child's reading record to acknowledge this. Please ensure that your child has their reading record in school every day.

Speaking and Listening - Please help your child to research areas for our Speaking and Listening sessions and to prepare their presentation to the class. Further information is available on the class noticeboard which will inform you of the colour group day and there are also suggestions for topics to discuss. If you have any questions then please talk to your child's class teacher.

Uniform  - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months and also please encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.
