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

This term our topic is: Castles!

We cannot wait to start exploring castles around the UK. We will be looking at where castles were built and why they were built there.

How were castles protected from enemies? What jobs did people have inside a castle? Our exciting trip to Lincoln castle will help us explore what life was like inside a castle.

How does a drawbridge work? We will be evaluating, designing and making our own drawbridge mechanisms.


Our Topic Homework Showcase is on Wednesday 12th February 2020 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!
