Communication

In Pine, you will have been familiar with communicating and receiving updates via Tapestry. Now that your child is in Year 1, we no longer use Tapestry. If you need to speak to one of us, you are welcome to catch us at the end of the day or send us an email, using the details below.

Mrs Fuller: jane.fuller@firslower.org

Mrs Boyes: holly.boyes@firslower.org

Miss Hamilton: alanah.hamilton@firslower.org 

For general queries, please contact the school office.

Reading

Please hear your child read as often as you possibly can. When you have read with them, please note down the page they are up to and any relevant comments about how you feel they are getting on with their reading.

Please do not feel that you have to rush through books or read a book a night. A few pages is often enough and it is important that children have time to discuss the meaning of the book as well as being able to read the words.

Homework

Spellings will be gradually introduced during this term and Learning logs (covering a variety of subjects) will start after the October half-term. We will provide more details nearer the time.
