READING WITH YOUR CHILD

School holidays are a great opportunity to read with your child.  If you can spare ten minutes a day to read with them you can make a huge difference to their development. You don’t have to read a book, you could read a comic, magazine article or a story you have made up yourself.  The National Literary Trust have a great website, giving you lots of hints, tips and ideas for making reading fun and interesting.  Please visit their website for more information at: http://www.wordsforlife.org.uk/  

 

BAGUETTES ARE BACK!

After the Easter holidays baguettes will be back on the menu but only on Thursdays! The choice will be either ham, cheese or tuna mayo and will also include crudités and a pudding.

To order a baguette a BLUE slip MUST be completed on the day, just like orange for jacket potatoes and green for vegetarian meals.

The cost of a baguette will be the same as a hot school meal, £1.85, or free if your child is entitled to a free school meal or universal infant free school meal in Years R-2.

Please look out for a ‘Baguette Flyer’ coming home with your child.
