Westmere Primary School

Spain

Welcome to Spain Class

Our class teacher is Miss Wells and our Teaching Assistant is Mr Piraino (who is also our afternoon class teacher)

In Year 6, we encourage the children to take on more responsibilities and the school, such as: House Captaincy, Playground Game Leaders, Lunchtime Leaders, Mini Police and School Councillors. We place a big emphasis on the children learning to become responsible citizens, who are aware of their roles, rights and responsibilities for themselves and towards the community, as well as preparing them for their transition to secondary school in September.

Every week, children are expected to complete a piece of Reading Homework, which can be selected from a variety options from the homework sheet. Homework is expected to be handed in on Thursday and is peer marked in the afternoon. Additionally, children are expected to complete self-led Maths homework improving skills such as mental multiplication. During each new big term, a topic-based homework project is set, which allows you to get creative at home with your child! If your child is struggling with their homework, we are always available to support them: they just need to ask. Please ensure your child reads at home daily as this is vital for their development of comprehension of text, widening their vocabulary, and supporting them with their writing.

We have an open door policy so if you need to discuss anything, please feel free to make an appointment at the school office to come and see one of us. We are really excited about all the fun learning which takes place; please keep checking the website for news and updates.
