Westmere Primary School

Mexico

It has been wonderful to welcome the children back to school this September. Our Teaching Assistants this year are Mrs Neal and Mrs Whisler. P.E. will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child is dressed in P.E. kit on those days. Homework will come home on a Friday and needs to be returned on Monday. The children have their Reading Records for you to record when you hear them read at home. We will change their books in line with current guidance. Please hear them read at home as much as possible.
