P2 Script

Hi everyone,

Your child will come home with lines to learn today or tomorrow. We won’t send home the whole script, only the lines your child should learn.

If your child has no lines in their purple bag then that is because these will be easily worked on in class.

Please check your child’s purple folder.

We will also send home a costume letter this week.

Can the lines be brought back to school each day?

Many thanks for all of your support,

The P2 Team 🙂

P2 Easter Show

Just a little blog post to let all parents/carers know that we have started to prepare for our Easter show. Once all parts have been given out then we will then send a script home for you to work on with your child.

All children should have a reading book home. Please read a little each day with your child. Point out tricky words, sounds and punctuation- capital letters, full stops.
