Bacup Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E. Primary School

Welcome to the Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E.P.S. Website

Welcome to 3M with Mr Morris!

Welcome to Class 3M's webpage for 2021-2022!

Some things you need to know about our class:

  • The Year 3 classroom doors open at 8:50am and school starts at 9.00am. Please be on time!
  • School finishes at 3.15pm. Please pick up your child from the classroom door.
  • PE is on Thursdays when children need to come to school in their PE kit, sweatshirt and school shoes. Remember to bring pumps in a bag to change into. Leggings and tracksuit bottoms can be worn instead of shorts.
  • Homework (Maths and Spellings) are sent home on Friday to be returned by the following Friday.
  • Spelling tests are on Fridays.
  • Children are expected to read at home every day, and reading books are changed regularly.

A few requests:

  • Please ensure that your child goes to the toilet before leaving home.  Going to the toilet during lessons disrupts learning.
  • Please arrive on time - learning starts with Maths catch-up practice at 8.50am. Regularly arriving late  harms your child's learning.
  • Please label all clothing - it's very difficult to locate your child's jumper when we have 30 in lost property with no names on!

Thank you!

I'm usually on the door for a quick word, or you can get in touch via the school office if you have any questions or concerns.
