We have been told by one of our caretakers that he had to come to school over the weekend to clear up the mess in our outside area...We were very confused as we didn't know what he was talking about!

We have used Language Through Colour to support children in building their sentences correctly and the children have enjoyed creating silly sentences. 


Keep giving your child opportunities at home to practice their letter formation or building up their fine motor control with colouring, drawing and patterns.
