Week beginning 8th July 2019

Dear Parents, Carers

As we approach the end of term, there will be transition events for you and your children over the next few days to prepare for their transition to Year 1 in September. Please note that your child's Year 1 class teachers  have not been assigned yet. However the children and you will have an opportunity to meet both current Year 1 teachers in due course to find out what to expect in Year 1. You will be contacted in due course about dates for these. 

Also, please note that with only two and a half weeks to go until the end of your child’s year in Reception, we will not be issuing any further reading books this week. Instead, reading books and yellow diaries will be collected on group reading days. Please also check if you have any other outstanding reading books at home.

We will continue to check word lists until the end of next week (last day Fri 19th July). If your child has not completed all 24 lists, they will continue with these into Year 1. Thank you for your overwhelming support with practising with your children to achieve their animal word certificates this year. It has been wonderful to see the positive impact it has had on their progress with reading.

Kind Regards,

Miss Pillay
