Reading at Home 

This week we are sending home a booklet with information about supporting your reading at home.  This is something many of you ask us about.  

Please look through it and let us know if you find it useful.  Improving progress in Reading is one of our school priorities this year, we do hope you will support us in this.  

If you would like more information, please contact your child’s teacher.

This is being discussed in each class, please ask your children about it and encourage them to enter.
