Autumn 2

Home learning 17.11.17:

Due to the main printer in school being out of order there will be no home learning sent home this Friday. Hopefully some home learning will be sent home at a later date.

Reading at home/Reading books

Please try to read with your child at least 3 times a week. During guided reading sessions children are reminded to change their book for a new one if they need to. Stickers and dates and put onto the bookmarks by either Mrs Jackson or Mrs Farmer once a week and the stickers will be back dated appropriately. If for some reason the bookmark cannot be found that particular day then we will add the bakcdated stickers the following week.

Home learning

Just a reminder that home learning is sent out on a Friday and is expected back Wednesday. It is the children's responsibility to hand in home learning books. If their book is not handed in home learning will be sent home on a sheet of paper so that it still can be completed.

German food tasting

On Thursday 9th November we will be holding a German food tasting session where children will have the opportunity to taste typical foods from Germany.
