We need your help!

We really need to know about your child’s interests so that we are able to help them to learn in the best way possible when they are in school. Please click here to see a list of questions we would like you to answer. If you are able to print out the sheet and complete it at home please do so or you can write the answers on a sheet of paper and bring these back to school when your child returns.


It is also really important to us to know more about the important people in your child’s life. Share and talk to your child about a family photo and then help them to draw a picture of their family to bring in to school when they return.
