Water Bottles (Please fill with Water Only).

Your child is welcome to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink in class. It must however has a ‘sports lid’ that eliminates (reduces the risk of spills). We encourage the children to take them home each evening, rinse them and bring them in full each day.

 

Reading

Please read with your child at least four times per week.  Check your child’s understanding of their book by asking them a range of questions such as: What might happen next? Why do you think the boy is feeling sad? What sort of mood is being created? This will help them to engage with their reading on a deeper level.  Please see your child’s weekly homework for further examples of types of questions to ask them.
