Lots of XMas play practise will be happening in the next two weeks - I hope we have our costumes! :)

Library books:

Your children will now be given the opportunity to 'check out' books from our school library. Each Wednesday, we will be going to the library in order for your children to check out, return and check out again new books. If your child has not finished with their book or does not want to return it just yet - that is fine!

Please note that no child will be given two books to check out at once and they can only check out a new book once the old one has been returned. 

Happy reading :)
