Growing Today, Ready for Tomorrow



We have been so pleased with how well Bamboo has inspired the children to enjoy reading at home for pleasure, that we want to extend what we do with him. 

We are introducing a book review to go home along with Bamboo. It is very simple, with the emphasis being on the child to complete it independently. This will give us something lovely to share alongside the photo. Please can we ask that you only send 1 photo (happy for this to be a montage photo), as we are cutting down on colour printing in school. 

I have attached the Bamboo Book Review below, but it will come home each day in an envelope as a paper copy in Bamboo's bag. The copy here is incase it is lost or needs replacing.  When complete, the envelope needs to be sealed, child's name put on the front and popped back into Bamboo's bag. 

The children are really excited about this new feature!

Many Thanks for your continued support.
