Looking forward to hearing from you all soon! yes

NEW - Please find below a letter informing you about learning phonics at home.  This is primarily for Reception and Y1 children.  However it is also useful for some Y2 children who need some extra practise with learning sounds, blending, spelling and reading.  The lessons start next Monday 27th April, the timings are included on the letter.
