Here we are enjoying our World Book Day.  We had a great adventure moving around the school completing different tasks in each room.  Well done to Skye A who dressed up as the rocket from The Darkest Dark who won best dressed.  Everyone made a fantastic effort including Mr Clark who came as pirate from Treasure Island and Miss Cole as Mr Bump.

Happy Easter to everyone.  Have a safe and enjoyable rest from school.  Well done to Stan for his amazing egg space design below.  Well done to everyone else for  their efforts..

Reading

It is imperative for the progression of your children's English that you find time to read with you child weekly. This doesn't need to be for long, but finding 5-10 minute gaps in which you can read, and expose your child to vocabulary and texts they might not otherwise be able to access would be hugely beneficial.
