Timetable

Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning every day so it is important that they always come to school with a hooded coat and have a pair of named wellies in school. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.

Thursday – PE

Remote Learning in the Event of a Bubble Closure

In the event of a class/bubble closure, we will provide your child with a remote home learning package for the duration of the bubble closure.  This will contain a mixture of  online and offline activities.  Details of this will be sent to you via Schoolcomms.  A  copy of it, along with the lesson materials your child needs, will be uploaded into Google Classroom for your child to access using their usual Google Classroom login details.

Homework

A Foundation newsletter is sent out via School Comms at the end of each week.

Reading: Please read with your child at least five times a week. Their book will be changed when they can read it confidently and it has been read at home.

Big talk: Children are given a topic to discuss at home once a week and are expected to come to school with a sentence to share.

Maths: Practical maths activities are suggested to do at home that fit in with the current teaching, for example, hunting for numbers.

Our first half term

The children have had a fantastic first half term at Menston Primary School. We have been incredibly busy! We have had fun playing outside and making fantastic dens, playing with our outdoor water equipment and learning about our year group tree. We have read some great books about friendship. Can you remember any of the books we have read? Talk to your grown-up about what you have learnt!
