Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful Summer break. We have a very exciting term ahead learning about castles.

Please read with your child everyday and sign the home/school diary. Your child's diary will be checked regularly and their books changed as required. Your child will also have key words in the front of their diary that they will need to learn to read fluently.
