Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back after Christmas - we hope you enjoyed the break as much as we did!

We are certainly ready for a new year and excited about all the projects we have planned. 



Please could children be supported with reading at home on a regular  basis. 

Children will bring home their spelling and additional homework every Friday.  Please ensure children practise their spellings daily. Spelling tests will be completed every Friday.
