Reading:  We encourage children to read widely, so please feel free to read any books at home and log these on Boom Reader, equally children are also encouraged to log their own reading. All children* have the opportunity to choose a home/school reading book which can be independently changed as required. They also have the opportunity to choose a library book.

(*Some children might still be bringing home a scheme book, but this will be based on an assessed need)


P.E. days for the Summer Term (second half)

Monday        - Outdoor sports including orienteering

Wednesday - PE (athletics and field sports) facilitated by Colchester Utd.      

Please ensure named P.E. kits are in school from the first day back and hair is tied back and earrings removed, thank you!


Home/School Partnership:

Please let me know, via the school office (email or phone), if there are any changes to pick up routines, or if you have any questions or concerns.

You are also most welcome to visit our classroom every Friday after school (3.15-3.30pm), where your child can show you work from the week of which they are particularly proud.
