Home Diaries and RED Teds

In Wonderful Willows, we love filling up our RED Teds. Every 10 weeks your child can fill up a bear and win a toy and other accessories for it if they have read 3 or more times every week.


Diaries will be checked every Friday for 3 or more reads, please ensure your child brings it in so they can have their star added to their Red Ted! 


I may also use diaries to write notes in if I need to explain something to parents/carers, so please encourage your child to bring them home and back every day. smiley
