Westmere Primary School

Welcome to Australia Class

We are a fantastic Year 1 class. Our teacher is Miss Wise and our teaching assistant is Mrs Watts.

Our PE days are Thursday and Friday so please make sure children come to school wearing their blue school hoodie and PE kit. Long hair must be tied back and all jewellery, including earrings, must be removed.

We love reading in Australia Class and those children who regularly read and return their reading books will receive westies to spend at the Westie Shop. If they read at least 3 times in a week, then they will receive extra playtime.

Our exciting topic is this term is Bright Lights, Big City! – Themed around London.

‘Put on your best outfit because you’re invited to have tea with the Queen! Use your best manners and comb your hair, as one will not be assumed if you don’t! What do you know about England’s capital city? Let’s find out all about London, including its history, transport and famous landmarks. Step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Create a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane… then burn it to the ground to recreate the Great Fire. Stand well back and watch how the flames spread. London’s burning! London’s burning! Fire, fire! Fire, fire! Hang on, there’s someone new in town! Plan a tour for Marley the meerkat making sure that he takes in all the sights and sounds on London before he finally meets his family at London Zoo. Are you ready for the bright lights of the big city? Hop in a black cab and … enjoy the ride!’

Our Topic Homework Showcase is on Thursday 24th October at 2:45pm, where we invite you in to see all of the wonderful things that we have been doing in our topic this term. We hope to see you there!
