This helps pupils to work independently to apply comprehension strategies when reading, The children work in groups of 3 developing their skills such as: working in groups, vocabulary work, and giving effective feedback.

For homework the children are encouraged to “Curl up with a Book”. ¬†It would be great if you could do the same!

Thank you to all the children who made such an effort to dress up today. ¬†We had some wonderful costumes. ¬†Mrs Barbara Smith happened to drop in and she picked the winners and Mary Poppins dropped by to give out the prizes!¬†Unfortunately we couldn’t give everyone a prize but whether you won a prize or not, everyone who dressed up are winners in our eyes!
