We are really lucky that we are all unique. For Home Learning this week we would like you to decorate a box, a fabric tile, or create a collage with pictures, ideas and objects that are important to you and reflect who you are.




The children have all been given a new reading record and library book. Please remember to read with your child a minimum of 5 times a week and sign their reading records. Remember it is 7 times a week for those completing the reading challenge. Reading Records will be checked on a Friday. Book can be changed any day so please ask your teacher or TA.
