Welcome back everyone! Great to see you all fresh and ready to go for our new term.  We have been very impressed by the number of children who have come back to school knowing their word sets.  Great work over Christmas :o) we have noticed a difference already.  

Just to remind that PE bags need to be in school, ready for Monday.  Yellow Reading records need to be returned Monday, Wednesday and Friday so we can see your childs progress at home.  Don't forget to write a comment on how your child has done with the words.

Many Thanks
