This is one of the most important skills and a big focus for our school. Reading is used for every subject in school and vital for life! You should aim to read every night for 10/15 minutes and can do this by using our class log in details for tons of free books on Oxford Owl https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/.
You can bring your own healthy snack (fruit or vegetable sticks) to school to eat at playtime.
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.
Weekly spellings will be uploaded to Class dojo for you to learn and practice at home. Once the children have completed the spelling homework they'll receive extra homework dojo points!
