Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

Year 3 – Cherry & Holly


Our Year 3 teachers are:

Cherry Class – Miss Bevan

Holly Class – Miss Williams

Our Teaching Assistants are: Mrs Corrigan and Miss Dibb


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

PE – PE for Cherry class is on a Tuesday and PE for Holly class is on a Friday. Please make sure your child comes into school in their PE kit on their PE day. We will be doing PE outside wherever possible so please ensure they have a suitable jumper and shoes.


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.


A Year 3 newsletter is sent out via School Comms each week.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three times a week. Reading books will be changed if parents have signed to confirm their child has read on a Monday only. Please only send reading books into school on a Monday to change.

Big talk: Children are given a topic to discuss at home once a week and are expected to share what they have learnt.

Spellings: Spelling is a high priority in Year 3. Children will be given words to learn each week at home and will be tested on a Wednesday.

Each week, children will be given a homework task to complete on Google classroom. If you need any support accessing Google classroom, please contact your child’s class teacher via the year group email address.
