Huge Well done to Harry Gill for his design of our new sticker!

We've been learning about 'growth mindset' and how to be resilient in our learning.

The sticker will be given to children who show an ability to manage distractions, persevere when learning is tough and become absorbed in tasks.

Don’t forget to read at home.  It is better to read little amounts but often rather than all at once. You should be able to answer questions about the text that you are reading also. Please get an adult to sign to say you have read and bring it in at least once a week.
