Reception - Tigers

Important Information

 

The children can bring in a named water bottle to go on the side which needs to contain only water or squash.

The children can come to school in their PE kit on a Friday with appropriate PE kit and footwear.

 

Your child will be given a reading book specific to their reading level. We would like the children to read as much as they can at home and record this in their reading record. Books will be changed on a weekly basis, please make sure your child's book bag is in school everyday so that we are able to hear them read.
