Please read as often as you can with your child, this will have a huge impact on their learning. They only need to read a couple of pages each night.

Weekly news:

Tuesday and Thursday: PE days

Books will be changed once during the week and on a Friday. It is best for the children to read a book 2-3 times to build up a range of skills.

Library books will be changed on a Friday only if their library book has been brought back in. (Everyone will receive a library book the first week back)

What's happened this week?

We've had a very exciting time in class...we found a magical golden egg!

We decided we would look after it and keep it safe. On Thursday and Friday, we suddenly heard noises coming from the egg! The children could hear snoring, rumbling, growling and on Friday we could hear cracking!

When we came to school on Monday, the egg had cracked open.

Homework is updated every Tuesday:
