All About My Family Project: The children should answer the questions on the sheet with the help of a parent or guardian at home. This will be combined with work done in class to create an 'All About Me' display by the end of the week. It would be great if you could stick in as many photographs as you can!

Some of these groups have received readers for homework so check with your child about whether or not they have reading tonight.Some groups have a reading log in their folder to keep track of their reading progress.
