Welcome to Larch Class. We are a class of Year 4 pupils who work with Mrs Havard and Mrs Thomson to learn everything we can at Westfield! 
European larch | The Morton Arboretum



We also have two other adults who work with us on a regular basis. 

Miss Winiarska is our Midday Assistant and Miss Evans takes our class when Mrs. Havard is not in class.



Summer 2 topics - Nature or Nurture?

This half term we will be reading the book Blue John by Berlie Doherty to support out class topic about mountains and natural geography of the U.K.

We will be learning about habitats in Science and looking at Mountains in Geography, including how they are formed and learning about some of the largest mountain ranges in the world, as well as contours and natural features of the area of Derbyshire where our book is set.

In R.E. we will be learning about parables from the Bible. In our Jigsaw sessions, we will be learning about changes in ourselves, our bodies and our lives.



Our PE day this half term is changing to Mondays. Due to our current provision in school, please ensure that your child comes into school dressed in their PE kit. We encourage children to dress appropriately for the weather.



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 Larch Class.



Everyday, children will have a spelling session where on a Tuesday, new spellings will be introduced. Children will be tested on these spellings on a Friday. Each child will be sent home with a spelling list on a Tuesday so that they can familiarise themselves with the planned learning. In addition, we also have a list of key words which we will learn across the half term. Learning these spellings can be supported at home by using Spelling Shed. 


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 use whilst not in school. 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.


Bug Club:

Times Tables Rockstars:

Spelling Shed: 

Purple Mash:


In the event of a Covid-19 Bubble Closure

In the event of our bubble having to close, the children will be provided with remote learning 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.

It is a national government requirement that children access our remote learning platform on the days that they would usually attend school, if their bubble is to close due to Coronavirus. It is important that good communication between school and parents/carers maintains during a bubble closure. We ask that all children respond to the daily task briefing on their Google Classroom homepage. 

If you have any questions, please contact the school office or myself at or via a private message on Google Classroom.
