Westmere Primary School

Australia

We are a fabulous Year 1 class. This year, our wonderful team will be Miss Winn and Mrs Cropley as our teachers, and Mrs Hodge will be our teaching assistant. We are really looking forward to working with the amazing children make up Australia class.

Every week we will be participating in PE. Please make sure PE kits are in school everyday. We ask that long hair be tied back and all jewellery, including earrings, must be removed. PE kits include the house coloured t-shirt and dark shorts, though in the colder months, a jumper and tracksuit bottoms are recommended. Children should also wear plimsolls.

We love reading in Australia Class and all have our own bookworms to count how many times we read at home. If we read 10 times at home we receive a certificate. Books need to be brought into school everyday, so that they can be checked and changed.

Homework this year will consist of weekly spellings, reading and Maths. We will send home a topic homework project each term to link with our current class work. Children that complete their projects will receive Westies and house points. We will also invite parents and carers in so children can display their fantastic work.
