A note was put into reading diaries or school bags today to inform everyone that reading groups will finish this week. The last reading books for this term were issued yesterday or today and will be gathered in on Wednesday or Thursday. It’s important that all books are handed back in so staff can then resort, count and if needed, order more books ready for next term. Reading bags and diaries will be kept in school over the holiday, so please take out any sheets or keywords you may wish to use over the break.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for all the hard work at home on reading and keywords. When I look back to August, it’s amazing to see how much the children have progressed. 🙂

Please be assured that we will still be reading regularly in class. We just won’t be using the ORT reading books. Wherever I can, I will add links or activities to the website so you can suport work at home if you wish.

To start off, here is a link to a song that the Elf on the Shelf left for the children after school today. I’m going to share it with them tomorrow. Enjoy reading and singing along!
