Friday 7th September
Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely summer break. The children have come back full of enthusiasm and are settling well into their new class.
The children have all taken a new reading diary and reading book home today. Please can they make sure they have these in school every day as we have an AR reading session after lunch each day. In key stage 2 we use the reading diaries differently to how they used them last year. The children fill them in themselves, recording the date they started a book along with the title and book level. Then, when they have finished the book, they record their quiz result.
