Dear Parents and Carers,

We will be reading for pleasure and for information. Pupils will continue to learn Makaton signs and to use PODD books/symbol boards. TG3 will be working with the Speech and Language therapist to participate in activities to develop their speaking, listening and communication skills. They will continue to engage in a phonics programme and reading a range of texts.
