PE – Monday and Friday. Please ensure PE kits are clearly named.

Music – Tuesday. Please remember to bring instruments into school on Tuesday morning.

HOMEWORK

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. Please send books into school each day as children will have a range of reading opportunities in class.

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 Friday.

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.

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.
