Being able to tell the time is a very important life skill – Please can you encourage your children to develop this ability at home and not just rely on digital clocks to tell the time.

Reading books should be returned on a daily basis, for pupils to improve their reading age and comprehension age research has found that if children read with parents for just 5 mins each night dramatic results can be achieved.

Pupils need to bring in their P.E kit on Mondays for their “health and fitness course”
