Please support and encourage your children in their out-of-school learning.

Children have their own reading books which should be brought into school every day and they are expected to read every night for 10-20 minutes.  This will help them to develop their fluency, expression, accuracy and comprehension skills. Parents are kindly asked to write a comment in their child's reading record after listening to them read. Your child will receive a new reading book by the end of each week if they have shown that they have read and understood it.
