We have been really thrilled with the progress children are making in their reading. How often children read at home has been a big factor, so thank you for your ongoing support. Please remember that children should try to read for 5 to 10 minutes each day, with a focus on their word reading alongside their understanding of the text. Most children should now be on the correct level of book, but please let us know if they are finding it particularly tricky or not challenging enough. Children should also be encouraged to read their own favourite books at home as well. Please remember to record any reading experiences in their reading records as they will be awarded house points.




PE will continue to take place on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure children have a suitable and clearly labelled kit for outdoor activities, including trainers and warm jumpers, especially now the colder weather is here! Unfortunately, due to current restrictions we are unable to take the children swimming this term.
