We would like to ask all Parents and Carers to ask their child about the school day in order to develop their speaking and listening skills. Encourage your child to include as much detail as possible when answering and ensure they are speaking in full sentences when they are talking. This will support oral sentence structure which will then be of help to your child when it comes to writing sentences.

Please send your child to school dressed up as a wizard or witch on the 31st October.

Many thanks Miss Nanavati
