Headteacher’s Comments

Practice makes perfect! That was the theme of my assembly this week. You can help your child with their learning by:

Listening to them read daily

Practising their words in their ‘Word pots’

Helping them learn spellings

Practice counting, adding and subtracting and times tables

Playing games

Taking them to museums, the forest and other places of interest
