P2W Wonderful Wolves 02.10.2020

Hello Wonderful Wolves and Happy Friday! 😊

Useful Information:

I hope you found the reading stage word lists, tricky word lists, sound diagraphs and reading rockets that were sent home last week  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.
  • Please label all items of school uniform as we don’t have access to a lost property box – thank you.
