Reminders:

The children have a reading record which needs recording in 5 times a week and signed once by a parent/carer. Please try and hear your child read out loud once a week. This will help them with their expression and performance.

 

The homework diary is an organiser or communication tool for you to contact us about the homework that is set throughout the year. We expect this to be signed once a week as well. This new book will support them with their transition into Year 7. Their spellings should be stuck into this book.
