Reading: Children will read with Mr Cheetham  during Guided Reading in class once a week. Children practise reading their colour level books regularly in class. Mrs Churitter will hear children read individually in class.

Your child's reading book should be brought into school each Friday. A new book will be sent home every Monday.


Thank you for reading with your child every day
