Welcome to Saplings 2019-20

Homework news!!

We will be giving out spellings on Tuesdays as well as new Mathletics homework. Your child's spelling book contains words that we will practise during the week. Please try to read the spellings with your child and once he/she is confident reading them, see if your child can write them in the Try 1 and Try 2 sections. There is also a section for remembering last week's words. Remember, reading the words confidently first comes before writing. 


A little reminder about trainers:

Could all children have a pair of trainers in school for when we get out on the running track. 


Water Bottles:

Water bottles will be sent home on Wednesdays for a wash instead of Fridays.
