KS1 Weekly News 27.10.23

Well done to all the children in Key Stage 1 for working so hard this half term. We are proud of how they have all settled in and of the progress they are making. Thank you for your support at home.

In assembly on Thursday, some children were proud to receive certificates for reading 25 times at home so far this term and for completing their homework. (They get certificates for reading 25, 50, 75 and 100 times at home) Remember to keep these certificates together, as they all add up for Mrs Hewitt-Best’s special Head Teacher certificates. Keep trying your very best – Reading opens
