Reading is vitally important and helps with all areas of your child’s development. We would like children to read with an adult 3 times a week and this to be recorded in their reading diaries by an adult. Reading books and diaries must be returned to school each day to be read, filled in or changed. Specifically your child’s diary will be checked for the reading awards on a Thursday.
We will also be continuing to read our Science fiction novel A Wrinkle in Time as a class.
