How can I help my child?

Thank you to the families that attended the parents' meeting this evening about the changes to the National Curriculum.  Below you will find the full version of the handout shared with you this evening.  The sections for year one and two and key stage one are the relevant sections for your children.

It is really important that children form letters correctly all of the time.  Please have a look at the information sheet below to find out how we teach this in school.
