Key Class Reminders

  • PE DAYS – Monday and Friday. On those days come to school in your PE kit J
  • Children are expected to read at home every night (even if it’s just 5 minutes). Children take home a reading for pleasure book which is their choice of book, they may not be able to read it so it can be enjoyed at home with an adult or older sibling. Children also take home their phonically decodable book which they can read independently. Listening to your children read is so important to aid development J
