Westmere Primary School

Welcome to France Class

Class Teachers: Miss Winn

Teaching Assistant: Miss Naylor

We are a fabulous Year 1/2 class. This year, our wonderful team will consist of Miss Winn (Teacher) and Miss Naylor (TA). We are really looking forward to working with the amazing children which make up France class.

Every week we will be participating in PE.  Please make sure that children are wearing their PE kits (including their blue PE hoodie) on TUESDAY AND THURSDAY. We ask that long hair be tied back and all jewellery, including earrings, must be removed. PE kits include the house coloured t-shirt and dark shorts. Although in the colder months tracksuit bottoms are recommended. Children should also wear trainers.

We love reading in France Class and children will be given 2 RWI levelled books. As Years One and Two are especially important years, please listen to your child read every day and ask them questions about the text. We do not change the books daily as we are trying to encourage reading texts more than once to build up fluency and expression. As a reward, we all have our own bookworms to count how many times we read at home. If we read 10/25/50 times at home we receive a certificate and if we read more than 3 times per week, we get extra play. Books need to be brought into school EVERYDAY so that they can be checked and (when required) changed.

Homework this year will consist of weekly spellings, a piece of English and a piece of Maths. We will send home a topic homework project each large term to link with our current class work. Children that complete their projects will receive Westies and house points. This term our topic is Fire, Fire! – Themed around ‘The Great Fire of London.’

If you should have a questions or queries, parents/carers can contact the class teacher by making an appointment at the office or by contact them directly via the class’ e-mail. However, please remember to check the school’s website and Facebook page, along with letters for regular updates and notifications.
