We hope you have enjoyed the first half term. Well done to those of you who have worked across the digital platforms to practise and consolidate your learning, and for uploading and sharing your work on SeeSaw.  It has been amazing to see how much effort so many of you are putting into your learning both in school and at home.

Having children back in our classroom and around our school has been fantastic, after such a long summer and the school closure. Things have been very different, however you have all adapted very quickly and have done an amazing job washing your hands and following the rules we need to keep in place so everyone is as safe as we can be.

Lots of you completed amazing work in preparation for biographical writing, we will be moving on with this after the half-term holiday and applying all the writing skills we have been practising since September.

Remember:

  • Your wellbeing is important,  think about ways to feel good. Practise the meditation we have learnt, take your mind on a journey, listening to soft music often helps. Or do some physical exercise, out in the garden is a great place to do this, or on a cool day find a space inside where there is room to move about.

In school we will be continuing with the following:

  • English - polishing up on writing skills
  • Biographical and news report writing
  • News reporting (you can be prepared for this by watching the news on TV and studying the way news readers connect with their audiences).
  • Reading - In class we will be looking for the heroes in fictional text and also real life heroes in non-fiction reports.

          Maths - Place value/the four rules of number/negative numbers and problem solving

            Homework - Will continue to be given out on a Monday and is due in on a Friday. Half term flipped learning topic is France, in preparation for our French day in the first week back.

Please also remember that you are expected to read a little each night at home - and if you spend 10-15 minutes each day completing a short personalised online task from our range of platforms that would be fantastic; it will enable you to revise prior learning, make connections and consolidate learning that has happened in school. 

Completing one short task each day on Study Ladder, My Maths and  Readtheory will give you important practise of very important skills. Remember, you can share what you have done on each of these platforms with your parents at home too. 

This term our work will also include

  • Investigations in Science
  • Digital skills linked to maths to create a heroes calendar 
  •  Manylion Personol (Personal Information) yn Gymraeg
  • Studies and reproduction of  art by Monet - Check out Banksy's new art piece 'Show me the Monet', it is the most expensive piece of artwork ever sold at auction!.
  • PE  please come to school dressed in P.E. kit each Monday
  • Scale and map drawing
  • Outdoor learning (each Wednesday please come to school dressed for practical outdoor learning experiences).

School is a little different but we hope you are enjoying your learning journey together so far.  My favourite times so far have been doing the mile with you all and watching as you all raced into the school orchard on a quest to find the largest apple. Remember to check out the photos on your See Saw account.

Until we see you on Monday, take care of yourselves, get plenty of exercise (and rest) and know that you are going to get the warmest welcome from us when we see you back at school. We can't wait!

Hwyl Fawr - Stay safe

Mrs Brown and Mrs Joan Williams

"I never thought that Westwood was so large inside! From the road, it seems so small. What a wonderful use of space. The school has changed so much over the years!" - recent visitor to school
