Inspiring children to care, learn and achieve

Spring Term


Reading books will be changed twice a week, please make sure that you send your child's reading book into school every Monday and Thursday to be change. 

A teacher or Teaching Assistant will listen to your child read on a fortnightly basis during 1:1 reading and weekly during group reading sessions. At home, please read daily with your child and please continue to write comments in their reading diaries to facilitate communication between home and school regarding your child’s reading.
