Things to Remember
Mr Jones will be in class Monday and Tuesday and Mrs O'Brien will be in Severn Class Wednesday to Friday.
It is crucial that your child practices their reading at home. Children will receive school books on a Monday and keep them until Friday when they will be collected in. Please encourage your child to read their own books or comics at home over the weekend.
