Welcome to the Class R page
- Our P.E. days are Tuesdays and Fridays however we would ask that children have their P.E. kits at all times.
- The children’s communication books are an important way for parents and teachers to communicate. Please feel free to write any questions, concerns or information in there and we will respond to you as quickly as possible.
- Reading books will be changed twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
A full parent's guide to Year R is available to download here.
Please don't hesitate in contacting us via my school email address if you have any further queries.
