Primary

It is hard to believe it is June already!  We usually look froard to June as it is the busy month filled with end of the year trips, fun days in the sun and warmer weather, however things are different this year and I miss everyone!  Even though the year was cut short it has been a great year with all of you.  I wish we had more time to learn together!  We did have lots of fun adventures and spent wonderful days learning and exploring!  I would like to thak the parents for helping with the learning at home these past few months, it was definitely a new experience for everyone!  I hope everyone enjoys the summer vacation and I look forward to seeing my students become the big kids in September as they go to grade 1.

Best wishes,
Mrs. Brooks

Why is reading so important?

Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.

In fact, there’s evidence to suggest that reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.

Inspiring ideas for little learners!
