P2W Wonderful Wolves 25.09.2020

Hello Wonderful Wolves and Happy Friday! 😊

Useful Information:

  • Next week I will be sending home a pack with the children. This will include reading stage word lists, tricky word lists, reading rockets to support questioning during reading at home and also a copy of the sound diagraphs we have already covered and plan to cover this term. I hope you will find them useful in supporting your child’s learning. 


  • Please could I remind you that reading books are handed out on a Monday and should come to school every day with your child. The books will be collected in on a Thursday allow us to “quarantine” the books over the weekend and swap them with other groups/classes for the following week. Thank you for your support with this.
  • Could I please ask that you return your child’s blue Learning Story folder to school if you have not already done so. Thank you.
