Reading

 

We will listen to your child read a minimum of once per week. Please ensure your child brings their reading book to school every day. As a school, we are encouraging parents/guardians to support us in improving your child's reading and understanding of the text by listening to your child read at least once a week at home. Following this, we encourage you to extend your child's learning by discussing and questioning your child on  what they have read.

* During morning play the children are allowed a healthy snack.

 

* So that children can have access to water throughout the day, please send in a water bottle filled with water only.
