Home School Diaries
We ask families and carers to return the Home School diary each day, as this will enable the class staff to provide comments and information about your child's day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with the class teacher.
Individual Education Plans
These set out the priority educational targets that your child is working on for the term. IEPs are updated each term and sent home. If there is anything that you would particularly like us to be working on, please just let us know.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning style and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book and this will be sent home with them to enjoy with you over the weekend. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories and fill in the reading record to let your child's class staff know how they have got on and then please return to school on a Monday morning.
Magic Moment Books
Your child will also be sent home a Magic Moments Book. This is an exciting way to share all the wonderful things that your child does at home. It's also a way to record special moments, anything that your child does for the first time and anything that they enjoy doing. We would also love it if you could send the book back in at the end of a half-term or after a holiday so that we could share your child's amazing achievements.
We kindly request that you send in £10 per half term. This contributes to any weekly resources that class might need.
