Could we also remind you

  • that your child should be reading regularly at home in order to consolidate the sounds and words that they have been learning in school during the week, through regular reading, they will also become more fluent readers without having to sound out each word in a sentence.
  • Water bottles should only contain water, not squash, juice or flavoured water.
