If the children have any different versions of these tales we would love to share them in class. Please name any books that are coming in to school.




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 Moments: Well done to all the parents who have supported their child in finding opportunities at home for them to succeed. Please continue to offer your children the ‘wow moments’ as they love to share them with the class and see them up on the wall.
