  • Please listen to your child read for around 5 minutes every night and ask questions afterwards or let them complete a Reading Plus sesson independently.
  • Ensure your child brings their book bag containing their reading and home-link books to school every day.
  • PE kits are to be kept in school each week and taken home half-termly for washing.
