Learning bags and library

Don't forget to bring your learning bag every day.  The children will be changing books regularly and this will be recorded in their home/school reading diary.  Children can also borrow books from our class library to share at home.  They can change these books on any day.

Please read with your child as often as you can - it is the most helpful way to support their learning.

Children will have a guided reading session with Mrs Robinson weekly.

Library Day is Thursday with Mrs Alderson.

Class assemblies

Each term, parents and carers are welcome to come to the hall and see a class assembly. We call these assemblies '10 minutes of fame!' They are not intended to be polished performances, just a little window into what children have been learning about. 

If you would like to know when your child's class assembly is, please look at the school newsletter which goes out every fortnight.


In Year 1, children receive at least one certificate per term for their achievements. 


 From Year 1 upwards, children receive a home-school learning grid every two weeks. There is more information about this here.

Reading with your child is the most valuable way that you can support their learning - we cannot over-emphasise this!
