Information for parents:

PE: This half term, Basketball will take place on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on this day.


Library: The children will visit the school Library on a Monday afternoon. All children will be able to choose a book from the Library to take home and share. Please do ensure this book is kept in your child's bookbag. 


Reading books: It is important that all children read to an adult on a daily basis and that a parent/adult signs their child's reading records to acknowledge that they have read to them. We kindly ask that reading books and records are stored in bookbags at all times to ensure that they can be changed regularly.


Homework: Please continue to support your child to work at their own pace with their tasks set on Mathseeds and Reading Eggs - it is wonderful to see the progress that many of the children have made so far! 


Tapestry: It is a pleasure to see all of the wonderful learning that is taking place at home via Tapestry - please continue to share these wonderful moments with us.
