Supporting your child at home:

Daily reading of their schemed reading book sent home from school. Please remember to comment in their yellow reading diary when they have read the book to you. Remind the children that they should put their reading book in the coloured basket every morning.

WOW slips: Please remember to acknowledge your child’s achievements at home by filling in a WOW slip. These slips will be shared with the class and then displayed on the class Wow Wall. There will be blank wow slips in a plastic wallet in the cloakroom.


Forest School  The children will continue to go to Forest School in Term 3. It will be very cold this term outside so please can you make sure your child has layers of clothing and thick socks to

keep them warm.

Please note that the groups have been changed and the children are now mixed up across both classes to support with developing their social skills.
