Panda Class

 Panda Class is currently being taught by Mrs Hillier in the morning and Mrs Lunn in the afternoons 

Term 5 - we need to come to school dressed in our PE kit on Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays -  and don't forget a water bottle.

We need to bring our red homework book and reading journal into school every day.

Don’t forget to write all reading into the reading journal - there should be at least 5 entries in there each week. 


Children should read every day, and it is still important, even if they are able to read by themselves, that they still read to an adult, or are read to by an adult. We would appreciate you having 'book talk' discussions with your child in order to develop their enjoyment of reading and their comprehension and word skills. You may find these links useful in guiding you on reading for pleasure and supporting your child at home: or .

Above are some question stems to assist you with this (Vipers KS2). If you are looking for suitable books then this website may be helpful:
