Why Are We Important?

Our fisrt half term altogether as Cherry Class!

For this half term, our Pathways to Write book is called 'Troll Swap', which is a fun and beautiful book about celebrating difference and accepting ourselves and others for who they are.  We will be learning skills that will help us to write our own version of the story. Our Pathways to Read book is ‘Troll’ by Julia Donaldson.  



In Maths, we will work hard to improve our mental maths skills, using Times Tables Rockstars and Numbots to help with this.  We will be focusing on numbers to 100 and understanding place value to give us a strong foundation for the rest of the year. We will then move on to addition and subtraction. 

In Science, we will be looking at 'Animals Including Humans'.  The children will be learning about how animals and humans grow into adults and what they need to survive and thrive. 


PE kits hspuld be brought into school on a Monday and are to be taken home on a Friday for washing. We will have indoor PE and will be doing dance on Tuesdays and will have outdoor games on Thursday where we will focus on the fundamanetal movement skills needed for a variety of sports.


At Westfield, we expect all children to complete five reading sessions a week. These should be recorded in each child’s individual reading diary. Pupils' diaries are checked every morning by an adult from Cherry Class. 


Online Learning Resources

Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can also access at home. All children are familiar with how to use these and their usernames and passwords can be found in their reading diaries. Please ask if you have any questions about these.

In the event of your child having to isolate, remote learning will be provided via Google Classroom, which can be accessed through most electronic devices via the website or the app. Every child has been given their own Gmail address. They are able to log onto our online classroom using these details.
