What a lovely play time we had this morning! Remember, if it's snowy like it was today, bring some wellies in so we can play in it.

Please send a filled water bottle to school with your child. These can be refilled throughout the course of the day.

Please make sure your child’s reading book and diary are in their book bags everyday and please sign them when you have heard them read. Books will be changed as and when required.

Spellings will be sent home to learn on a Friday for a quiz on the following Friday. Please make sure blue spelling books are returned every Friday.
