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  High Frequency 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 ( Please ask for log in details) We also use your child’s reading folder to send any letters or information to and from school so please check it daily. Please fill your child`s reading record book in daily as a record of when your child has read to you.
Please use these useful links to aid your child`s learning.

It is important for your child that we communicate with you about him/her. There will be daily updates, as to activities in our class via Class Dojo. The message service is set up for our class and I can answer any messages between 7.30-8.30am and 3.30pm and 6pm. Please use this to let us know about any issues you think would be important to us .You can also find out about what is going on in school, through regular newsletters, texts and our school website.
