Several children from Astbury School completed the library reading challenge over the summer holiday and have been proudly showing others their certificates and medals. It is great to hear children talking about books and authors as well as sharing their favourite book titles with one another. Two children in Y6 have written book reviews / recommendations for this newsletter:
Please help your child by supporting with their learning at home as much as you can. There are still many children not completing their reading diaries each week and not bringing them to school each day. Please remember that the diaries have a double page for one week. You can always split the reading rows into more rows if you read lots!
The majority of children in school are now completing homework and handing it in on time. Please remember, that with our new approach, this can be as much or as little as you feel is appropriate for your family, depending on how busy you are. The learning can even be completed as a discussion in the car if you are going away for the weekend and have not done the work by Friday. If you are unsure of what is expected, please read through the homework letter again and/or come and talk with your child’s teacher.
We have been supporting our local community by joining in a litter pick last Friday afternoon. The children in Class Mary were expecting to find only a small amount of rubbish around the playground and the village hall. They were shocked to collect three bags full!
