Notes and Reminders
Library books, which the children bring home on a Wednesday, can be kept at home until the following Wednesday, when they should be bought back to school to change. This book is for you to read to your child and share with them. If you want to return it sooner, just hand it into one of the reception staff.
- Can I ask that reading books and reading record books are in children’s book bags every day just in case we call on your child to read with us.
Thank you for your support
