Reading wallets should be brought into school everyday.
Reading books will be changed once a week on a Monday - reading records will be checked, please record when you hear your child read, if this is not done we will not change the book because we will assume that the book has not been finished. Children should read their book as much as possible within this time to build up their resilience and word recognition.
Reading is a core part of our day to day life at school where we encourage children to discover and explore a range of texts as well as aiming to encourage a love for reading.
It is important to establish a reading routine at home where children are reading every night to an adult for 5 minutes. Please record any reading to an adult in their reading diary.
Our PE days are on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please remember your child needs black PE shorts for indoor PE. These need to be named as they will be collected in and kept in school. On our PE days it is important that all jewellery is removed for health and safety reasons. If your child has their ears pierced, please ensure earrings are removed before school.
