However please feel free to contact us via the office, should you need to.
Reading in Chestnut Class
All children have a reading book. Children should have a separate clear book folder in school every day in order to protect the books and this will carry their reading book, a library book and words they are learning. Reading forms part of the homework and is encouraged at home as much as possible. We also use Bug Club reading online ( login details to follow) We also use your child’s reading folder to send any letters or information to and from school so please check it daily.
