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

Homework

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

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three 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.

Announcements

In line with the government directive, as of Monday 23rd March until further notice, Menston Primary School will be open as a childcare facility to our school’s key worker children and children that fall into the vulnerable category for those times when they cannot be safely cared for at home. Department for Education advice is that if it is at all possible for children to be at home then they should be. For any children registered for childcare, please report all absences to the school office before 9am. We have a 24 hour absence line 01943 873180 where you can leave a message to let us know what the reason for absence is. You must not send any children in if they are displaying the symptoms of Covid-19 which include a new, persistent cough and/ or a high temperature. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
