HOMEWORK

A Year 4 newsletter is sent out via School Comms each week. Children will also receive a child-friendly version in their homework diaries.

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 research at home once a week and are expected to share what they have learnt.

Times Tables: Year 4 is a key year for children to develop fluent recall of all times tables so they are encouraged to practice these regularly.

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.
