I hope that you find the information useful.Please could you read regularly with your child at home and write it in their homework diary. We will be reading Horrid Henry books, David Walliams books and Roald Dahl as our main class text throughout the year. I welcome any work, books, artefacts related to any of the areas we are studying this term, brought in from home. If you have any queries or want help, you’ll be more than welcome to pop in for a chat.
