Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

Foundation – Acorn & Oak

STAFF

Our Foundation teachers are:

Acorn Class – Miss Greenwood

Oak Class – Miss Lain

Our Teaching Assistants are: Mrs Stuttard, Mrs Gray and Mrs Adcock

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.

Please follow this link to access parent information about end of year non-negotiables for English and Mathematics. Any support that you can give to your child to achieve these targets will be extremely valuable.
