Key days of the week

Monday – Shared Readers home

Tuesday – P.E day

Thursday – Return Shared Readers and Reading Records

Key information

P.E.

At the moment Mr Glass is teaching us on a Tuesday morning.

These classes will be outdoors as much as possible, so please ensure that your child wears appropriate clothing on that day (eg trainers, leggings/joggers, school jumper/sweatshirt). Please also bring a spare pair of trousers or a skirt in case these get wet.

For safety reasons, hair should be tied back. No school ties please!! If required, the children will also be asked to wear their outdoor coat.

Reading

Shared readers will go home every Monday.

Please keep these in a safe place at home and take time to enjoy them together.

Please return both the shared reader and reading record on Thursdays so they can be ‘rested’ for 72 hours.
