This is one of the most important skills. Reading is used for every subject in school and vital for life! You must read every night for 10/15 minutes (or more of course!). Bring your book every day to school - signed by whoever reads with you!
Bring £1 to school on a Monday, every week for snack. We use any left over for other classroom resources.
Please make sure your school uniform has your name on it. Don't forget your coat! This is to make sure that there are no mix-ups, or if you lose your jumper, it can be returned to you as soon as possible.
We are trialing a new type of homework with a range of fun and exciting activities for you to complete! Homework will be given out the first week of every term and once the children have completed a homework task we encourage them to share this will the class in order to receive their homework dojo points!
