Reminder:

Please ensure your child brings a named water bottle each day.

Please ensure all uniform and PE kits are clearly named. Your child will need an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. Any old joggers, jumpers, and trainers will be fine to use. 

Reading -We recommend that your child changes their reading at least once a week. It is great that some children are changing their books more frequently. 

Maths - If we feel your child needs specific support on a concept we will send something home to help.
