Reading at Home:
All children are expected to read regularly every week to an adult and have it signed in their planner by an adult at home. Every five reads earns a merit. When they have read 25 times, they will receive a golden ticket which will be placed in a prize draw at the end of each half term.
Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.
Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning. Children will receive a merit for planners that have been signed when returned on Monday.
Our Classroom Rules:
- Be respectful.
- Maintain a clean learning environment.
- Follow any teachers’ directions the first time.
- Take responsibility for yourself.
