We are organising a small class party for Wednesday 21st July, so would be very grateful if you could contribute some fruit, crisps and other nibbles.
Book Changing Days
We will be changing the children's reading books on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child brings in their book bag on these days if they would like to change their book.
Please note that Core Reading books are sent home to develop your children's pleasure and enjoyment for reading. You can read them with or to your child - or both!

Number Bonds to 10
Number bonds to 10 are pairs of numbers that, when added together, give the number 10. Knowledge of number bonds will help your child with their addition and subtraction tasks. Please help your child to become familiar with their number bonds to 10.
Once your child is secure in their number bonds to 10 then please move on to number bonds to 20. Number bonds to 20 are pairs of numbers that, when added together, give the number 20.
As your child practises their number bonds, they will be able to recall them quickly and out of order.
