We will endeavour to try to help and try to respond as soon as possible.  Please appreciate that we may not be able to help with all issues remotely.  

Week beginning 1st June 2020

 

Reading

Set some time aside each day to read: this could be a Bug Club reading book or a book/magazine/online reading from home.  

Your teachers are checking your Bug Club books and responding to all of your typed answers - look out for our comments.

stories.audible have now made all of their children's titles free during this pandemic - explore the titles on offer to try something new.

We have sent home an activity sheet (see below) of follow up activities that your child could complete.
