Westcliffe Primary School

'Our school is committed to inspirational teaching to create aspirational young people.'


Welcome to 3/4B

In literacy, this term, we will be jumping feet first into the Firework Makers Daughter by Phillip Pullman. We will meet an impressive young lady, Lila, and her determination to become a firework maker despite the challenges she is confronted by along the way.

This book will lead us through our D&T work, where 3/4 will closely examine elephants and their physicality’s and movements. Eventually we shall use all our knowledge to create our own 3D elephants.

Our topic work see us exploring the ever-changing environments of human and physical geography, looking specifically at volcanoes, mountains, earthquakes and the water cycle. We will also be investigating plants, their features and their importance to the environment.

34B will continue to swim on a Monday until 28th January. Our PE days will then become Wednesday (outside) and Thursday (indoor). Children should bring their kit in to school on a Monday and keep it in school until Friday just in case PE days have to be swapped round.
