Home Reading Books
Your child needs to read every day, this will develop reading and writing skills. Each child takes books home and the books must be kept in good condition. The more time you spend reading with your child at home, the more confident they will become. This includes discussing what has been read, to ensure that your child has fully understood.
Parent Volunteers for Reading
We would greatly appreciate any parents who would be kind enough to volunteer to read with children in our classes.
P.E. takes place once a week, run by Mr Canavan, our specialist sports coach on a Monday. Children need to have full school P.E. kit, which includes shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls. All kits need to be fully labelled with your child’s name and year group.
Please make sure your child attends school regularly and on time every day. Year 3 pupils are to line up in the playground at 8.50 every morning. At the end of the school day, please collect your child at 3.00pm from the Key Stage 2 playground. After school clubs end each day at 4.00pm, children must be collected promptly from the front of the school.
Any child not collected by 3.10pm or 4.10pm (after school clubs) will be put in our after school club at a cost.
If you have any concerns about your child, that you would like to discuss, please feel free to set a date and time to discuss this with me.
With kind regards
Mrs K Goff
