  • Friday 21 January 2022 Friday 21st January - Reading Books Could we please ask you to have a really good check at home this weekend for any of the home Book Bag Books that your children have been bringing home since September. We are finding that we have lots of books that have not been brought back. As you know the home reading books are matched exactly to what your child is reading in their RWI sessions in school. If your child has not brought their book back to school it means that another child cannot have the book they need. Thank you so much for your support with this.
