Westmere Primary School


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


This term in Reception our topic is ‘Near and Far’.  We will be learning about our local area and places further away.  We will be looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts to find out about places all around the world and the transport we could use to travel there.  We will be exploring questions such as ‘Which vehicles move quickly?’ and ‘Can you ride a bike to Australia?’

To support your child at home you could talk about the different places you have visited as a family and how you travelled there.


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!
