Westcliffe Primary School

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


Welcome to the Spring Term



This term our topic is ‘Where the River Flows’ and we will be learning all about rivers. This includes the different parts of a river and their importance to everyday life. We will begin by looking at the rivers in the UK, before expanding our research to the rest of Europe. We will even be looking at the importance of the river Nile to ancient Egyptians which is our focus for history.  History will also cover many different aspects of ancient Egyptian life and the beliefs they had. The children have an amazing opportunity to explore artefacts from the local museum to further their learning and understanding.


Each week we will continue to complete the 99 Club and practise sheets will be sent home on a Friday. Please can children return their 3 practice sheets by the following Thursday. Children can complete extra times table practise by logging onto their TT-Rockstar account, their username and password is on the front of their home school diary.

Our PE day is Tuesday and our library day is Thursday.


There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to complete all that we would like, so please could you help by reading with your child 3 times a week and practising their 99 Club 3 times. This will also help your child to become Pupil of the Week.
