New books!!!

Exciting news, we have had a large delivery of new brown band books. We ask you take good care of these books as school can't afford to replace damaged books and parents will be charged £5 if a book is returned damaged. Thank you in advance.


Children should be reading at least 5 times a week at home (this doesn't always have to be their school book). This should be recorded in their diaries. This is monitored in year 4. This week in Bronte 14 children hadn't read 3 times!!
