We want your support in encouraging independent reading and in engaging in your child’s reading. Kindly try to build this into your daily routine and have a quiet, comfortable space your child (and you) can read in. The children may use the school notebooks to complete the task. They may also use their own notebook. We would be delighted if they can complete the daily tasks, but if they cannot, we completely understand.
