Reading is fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and gives you a greater chance to succeed.

Please support your child read by hearing them at least four times a week and completing their Reading Record. Thank you!

Additional information on our learning this week

The children can use SMART amp and G Suite for their homework. They can now also use Times Table Rock Stars, they each have their own individual log in details and passwords. The children thoroughly enjoyed their trip this week to Layer Marney Tower. Thank you for all their wonderful costumes. We have started our final Topic of the year which is 'How the Thames Shaped London.' If your child wishes to submit some homework on this Topic then they are more than welcome to do so. We are not setting specific projects as we wish to give the children extra time to complete their Tudor projects.
