Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a great break.

A few bits for the week...

  • We have sorted the class into new guided reading groups according to the particular skills they need to learn. At times, children may be using books that are above or, more often, below their reading levels. I have assured the children that they will have many opportunities to practise at their reading level but these groups are focused on skills. If you or your child have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

  • Ask your child about the April Fools joke we played on Miss C-D!

  • Brentwood Fun Lunch Online ordering open now until April 12th.

  • New Spelling this week! Please help your child return his/her homework book every Thursday. Being responsible for these books and the work in them is an important start to building positive homework habits for future years.
