What you can do to help your child

I know that many of you do these things already, but please could you:
  • Hear your child read at least twice a week and talk about unfamiliar words, the characters and plot of the books they read.
  • Support your child and ensure that they complete homework tasks appropriately and hand them in on time.
  • Ensure that you label ALL of your child’s belongings as we try very hard to re-unite lost property with its owner. I have a large bag of lost property left over from last term, this available for you to check at any time.

Sport

  • PE with PAS will be on Wednesday morning and swimming is on Thursday morning. Children will need clearly named PE kit in school for the whole term and swimming kit/towel for Thursday mornings.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to pop in or to phone the office, leave a message and I can ring you back.
