Westmere Primary School

Mexico

It has been wonderful to welcome the children back to school after Easter. Our Teaching Assistants this year are Mrs Curson and Mr Richardson. Ms Ashby teaches us on a Monday and a Friday and Mrs Dale teaches us on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

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.

English

Our English is based around Greek Myths to Link with our topic. In addition, the children will be focusing on writing skills to develop their knowledge and understanding of grammar and vocabulary. We will be carefully identifying gaps to support them. Our Class Novel is The Boy at the Back of the Class.

Maths

Our Maths Recovery Curriculum continues for the Spring Term with Fractions. We are continuing to follow the White Rose Curriculum focusing on gaps in their learning.

This term’s topic is: The Groovy Greeks.

From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light. Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes and plenty of pottery! Poseidon, Apollo. Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets. Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus. Then, decide your own fate, when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.

P.S.H.E.

Our Jigsaw Theme for this term is relationships.

R.E.

The children will be exploring the Big Question. “What does it mean to lead a good life?”

Science

The children are exploring all aspects of Sound.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask and we will be only too happy to answer them and help in any way that we can.
