As this week is a shorter week, your child has only been set tasks for Monday and Tuesday night.
The accompanying worksheets will be sent home in the clear plastic zippy wallet on Monday night. I would really appreciate if this wallet could be returned to school empty in your child’s school bag on Tuesday. Please return your child’s reading book to school on Wednesday this week.
Could you please encourage your child to practise their reading book each night.
