Dear Parent/ Carer,
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know what topics Class 2 will be covering throughout the Summer Term 2019.
Literacy: This term we will be doing an author study on Roald Dahl. We are making our own in-class library of his books, so if you have any you would like to bring in please feel free to do so. Remember to name the books so they find their way back home.
