Home Reading Folders
Please could book bags be returned with the home reading book inside every Tuesday. Please make sure that you only return the book in the folder as we have to quarantine the contents.
Homework will be set every Friday using Seesaw, where teachers can set homework digitally for children to complete on a device at home, which can then be sent back for the teachers to respond to. We will also assign books to your child’s Bug Club online library.
