Reading Books


Children now bring home a reading book. Books may be changed daily if an adult has signed their reading record to show that they have shared their book at home. 
Please place books (with the reading record) in the box outside the classroom to be changed.

Children who read at least 5 times a week will  be entered into the Reading Raffle which will take place each week.

Library Books

Your child will bring home a library book each week for you to share with them. 
Please return library books on THURSDAYS to be changed.

Home Learning

Your child will soon be given their Home Learning book. This will be sent home on Fridays with a selection of topic and Maths activities to choose from. Please complete one of each activity each week.
Please return books by Wednesday.
There will be a large green box outside the classroom to leave books in.
