Westmere Primary School

China

We are an awesome Foundation Stage class. Our teacher is Miss Richardson and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Watts.

This term in Reception we will be learning the school routines, settling in and meeting our new friends and adults that will be working with us. We will learn both inside and in our outside area, which has lots of resources to help encourage new skills and knowledge. We may come home a little dirty from all the exciting outdoor and indoor learning we have been doing! Please can you make sure that we always have a coat in school and a sun hat and sun lotion if it is hot, as we go outside in all kinds of weather.

Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be returned within the next week. When children return their homework or reading book, they will receive a Westie which they can then save up over the week to spend at the school’s Westie shop! Homework is currently phonics based.  We will be learning actions and songs to help remember the sounds.  We currently follow the Read Write Inc scheme for Phonics and lots of resources can be found online to help your child at home.

We also use Tapestry (an online learning journey) to show you what we have been doing in school during the day and what we are most proud of.  Tapestry is also a fantastic way for you to show your child’s teacher what they can do at home, as sometimes due to the busy nature of school life, we may miss one of your child’s amazing skills! If you have any problems accessing Tapestry please come in and see us.

Please make sure PE kits are in school every day. Long hair must be tied back and all jewellery, including earrings, must be removed.

We look forward to sharing with you all the amazing things we have been doing in school!
