Listening and Talking Presentation – Thank you for sharing your talks. I enjoyed hearing about your favourite places.
A reminder to please name all items of clothing, water bottles and shoes, and to check names on items brought home in case your child accidentally acquires an item belonging to someone else.
This week’s homework
