Mr Taylor

* Book bags / bags are to be sent in daily. There is a place for these so your child can keep them safe.

* Homework will be handed out out on a Friday and will need to be returned on a Tuesday to be marked.

* Spellings / handwriting will be stuck in books so please encourage your child to complete these too.

* A BUGCLUB book will be allocated to your child and will be sent home every Friday.  Please send this back into school by Tuesday so we can allocate another one to them. Also, please sign the log and add in any additional comments. The expectation is that your child reads their BUGCLUB book every week. We will increase this as the term progresses.

* BUGCLUB, Phonics Hero, Purple Mash and TTRS logins are in the front of your child's homework book. 

* I use MARV Me to praise your child and send key messages home so please check daily. If you need help logging back onto this again please ask the office and we'll supply the details
