Home - School Link Books

Home - School link books are checked by a member of Willow Class Staff daily.

Please make sure that your child has their link book with them in each day, should we need to write a note home. 


As we are  a Healthy School, your child's snack should consist of food such as toast, breadsticks fruit, yoghurt or vegetables. Drinks should be either fresh fruit juice, milk or water. Cereal bars are not to be sent in for snack.

Toast and milk are availble to buy from school at a cost of £2.15 per week. Toast is available at a cost of £1.25 per week. 

Snack money should be paid via the ParentPay app. If you would like help to do this, please pop into the school office for some advice.

Reading books are checked daily. Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every night and sign their Reading Champions record.

A number of our children struggle with comprehension. Try to ask a few questions about the story they have read to support them with this.

After every 10 reads your child will earn a 'Reading Champions' certificate and have their name on the newsletter.
