A message from the Head of School…
We hope all our families enjoyed the long bank holiday weekend. This term the school continues to focus on developing the children’s reading fluency, comprehension and enjoyment. The
new library is now complete and the children love using this room to read their favourite books. This term every class teacher will read to their class 6 times a day, from a range of genres to
help support and enhance the children’s love for reading. Please ask your child more about this. Nessgate enjoyed another lovely afternoon at Minster Grange Care Home today showing off their amazing reading skills!
