Home Reading Records 

Just a polite reminder that the home reading records are primarily for home use. Please rest assured that we are hearing all children read on a regular basis, however we keep our own records in school and don't always have the time to write in the home reading records too. 


With regards to book bands/colours, we closely monitor these in school and move the children on when we feel they are ready. We want children to be able to read their home reading books fluently and be able to enjoy them, and it is in school through Read Write Inc, that children will access more challenging books. Each child should know what colour book band they are on and it is their responsibility to choose the correct colour when they change their book. If we feel they are ready to move onto the next colour, we will make them aware of this so they always know which colour book to choose.  

Homework... thank you!

I just want to say a huge thank you to ALL of our parents for supporting our children with their spelling homework and home reading. The children are so eager to change their books each day and I’m already noticing what a huge difference this is making to their learning... so thank you!

Mini Vinnie Shop - Friday 2nd October!

Next Friday it will be Year 1’s turn at the Mini Vinnie shop! Children can bring in a small amount of money (a couple of pounds should be plenty) to spend at the shop, which sells all sorts of stationary, accessories and small toys, and is run by the Year 6 Mini Vinnies who work hard to raise funds for good causes.

We’ve had a great few weeks settling into Year 1 and have all been absolute superstars! What a fantastic year we are going to have!
