Celebrations of learning

This week ended with 2 celebrations for reading and writing. In reading we had a read-athon and the the children got a chance to read just right books to many of their peers. They then gave a compliment to each other and recorded this on their partners celebration sheet. They took these sheets home yesterday and I hope you enjoyed reading them with your child. Thank you for supporting your child's love and success in reading.

We also had a writing celebration where they did a similar thing. The children are all excited to share their published books and compliment sheets with you, so I will be sending these home next week for you to read and enjoy with your child.


There is a lot of important announcements about upcoming events. Please mark your calendar as it is a busy time of year.


Have a lovely weekend.
