Homework - Learning Logs
Every Friday we will give you a homework activity to share with your child. You will find the activity in your child’s Learning log book. All homework should be returned to us by the following Wednesday.
Reading and Book Bags
Please can you ensure your child has their book bag everyday and not just their specified reading day this ensures that we can change your child's book whenever needed. We will use the yellow 'Reading Record' to communicate with you at home and would appreciate it if you could comment on how your child has been reading each week. Book bags are also really handy for the children to bring home letters, pictures and certificates!
