Westmere Primary School

China

We are an amazing Foundation Stage class. Our teacher is Miss Richardson and our teaching assistants are Mrs Ryan and Miss Naylor.

Topic

This term in Reception our topic is ‘Tell me a story’.  We will be reading lots of traditional tales, as well as some more recent stories.  We will be carrying out investigations to find out what would make a good coat for Red Riding Hood to visit her Granny in the rain and what would make the best house for the Three Little Pigs.  We will also try and find out why the Gingerbread Man didn’t want to go in the water.

You can support your child by reading lots of stories to them, talking to them about where the stories are set and who the characters are.  You can also talk about similar characters from different stories.  For example; the children likened the wolf in their new book ‘The cave’ to the Big Bad Wolf in Red Riding Hood.

Homework

Your child will bring home two books to read.  These need to be read more than once each as this builds confidence, understanding and fluency.

Maths homework will sent on a Friday.  This can be completed and brought in on paper, a note from parents, on a proud cloud or as an observation on Tapestry.

Tapestry is 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.

P.E is on a Tuesday and Wednesday, so please make sure that your child comes to school wearing their P.E kit, long hair is tied up and earrings are removed on these days.

Please can you make sure that children always have a waterproof coat in school as we go outside in all kinds of weather.

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