Spring Term Reading Challenge

During this half-term, we will continue our reading challenge.  All you need to do is sign your child's home reading record so we know when your child has been reading. After completing a book, Mrs Wale will initial your child's independent reading chart. Please support your child as much as you can. I want the challenge to be exciting and one that encourages them to read even more.

Spring 2 Spellings

An overview of Spring's spellings has been sent home (you can look at them by pressing on the link below too). Your child will come home each Friday with their test sheet and result.
