Summer 1

This half term, we will be focussing on Africa and the many animals that inhabit there. Our books this half term are 'The Hunter' by Paul Geraghty and 'African Tales-A barefoot collection'.



This half term we will be having our PE lessons every Wednesday afternoon.



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 the class teacher.



Every Tuesday, spellings will be given to the children to learn. These spellings will be introduced to the children through a discreetly taught spelling session. Children will be tested on these spellings on a Friday. 


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.


Bug Club:


Purple Mash:


Covid-19 Bubble Closure

In the event of our bubble having to close, Mr Parker will provide remote learning through Google Classroom. Every child has been given their own Gmail address. They are able to log onto our online classroom using these details.

It is a requirement that children access our remote learning platform on the days that they would usually attend school. 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. This is so that Mr Parker can record who has been able to engage with the learning tasks.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office. 

Alternatively, you can contact Mr Parker directly via his school email
