So proud of him. :D

Superb tag, Coops, love it. Way to go Jack! Always such a good feeling to know your boy is doing well, my boy Keagan is nearly 14 but I still get that feeling when I read his report. Good to hear Jack reads so well, so important, we've always had books at home, can't believe how many kids grow up without them these days! Keep up the fab work! Zo xx
