At Heatherlands, one of the things we have really missed is welcoming parents and carers in to school to take part in “Reading Friday”, which started up at the beginning of the spring term this year. Sadly, it seems that we won’t be in a position to re-instigate these events just yet, so for the summer term, we thought we would offer some guidance so that you can celebrate “Reading Friday” at home, concentrating on a different reading skill each week. Instead, we would like every Friday between now and the end of term to become a “Reading Friday”.
Zain from Yr2 has been busy. Well done Zain!
Hallie (Cherry class) rescued some tadpoles from a puddle at the Rec near the school before lockdown and Hallie has enjoyed watching the development/metamorphosis, she has helped keep the water clean, fed them and she was very excited to see them climbing up the tub this morning now that some have become little frogs!
