Westmere Primary School

Welcome to Canada class

Class Teacher: Miss Pooley

Teaching Assistant: Miss Crane

P.E

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit, which is suitable for outdoors (including appropriate footwear). Your child must also wear their blue federation hooded jumper. Children with long hair need to have this tied up for these lessons and any jewellery, including earrings, need to be removed.

Homework

Homework is sent out every Friday, and is due back in school on the following Wednesday.

Every week, children are expected to complete a piece of Reading homework, which can be selected from a variety of options from their Responding to Reading sheet. Additionally, children are expected to complete self-led Maths homework, improving skills such as mental multiplication.

Please ensure your child reads at home daily, as this is vital for developing their comprehension skills, widening their vocabulary and supporting them with their writing. Children who read more than three times per weekly, will gain extra playtime as a reward.

During each new big term, a topic-based homework project is set; this allows you to get creative at home with your child!

If your child is struggling with any aspect of their homework, we are always available to support them: they just need to ask.

Topic Homework – Anglo-Saxon Settlers

Your child has the following options for their project homework:

  • Find out about Anglo-Saxon invasions in your local area and present your findings to the class;
  • Research and make an Anglo-Saxon shield (think carefully about any designs that you may need);
  • Try to make some Anglo-Saxon bread (recipes can be found online);
  • Look at images of Anglo-Saxon coins and try to re-create your own;
  • Research and make an Anglo-Saxon round house (be inventive in the materials that you choose to use).

Topic homework is due in the week commencing Monday 16th March.

Our Topic Homework Showcase is on Tuesday 24th March 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

If you have any questions of queries throughout the term, please do not hesitate to make an appointment.
