We hope you had a good summer and that your child will settle quickly and happily into Year 6. We look forward to working with you and with your child throughout the year.

Reading books and reading records should be brought to school every day. We hope that your child will maintain a regular reading habit at home and complete at least two in-depth entries per week.

This has been discussed already during lessons. Your child has also been offered the opportunity to participate in the Year 6 Reading Challenge.
