Reading books and other bits


We have taken out all of the children’s reading books today as we are missing a lot of books and need to find out what is missing. If you have any books at home please return them as soon as possible. Over Christmas we want to encourage the children to read books from home or from the library.


There will be no shared reading on Friday due to our Christingle service and there will also be no open classroom either due to finishing at 1.30pm. It will also be our final Christmas jumper day.


We have no spare clothes left at school. If you have any of our spare clothes please bring them back before Christmas and if you have any unwanted underwear or uniform we would gratefully accept it at school.

Our learning in history


This week we have been learning about toys throughout history. It would be great if children could speak to grandparents about what they played with as children and how toys have changed over time.
