Westcliffe Primary School

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


Welcome to 3/4BC class page. The children are very lucky this year to have two teachers, Mrs Crawford on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon and Mrs Brown for the remainder of the week. PE is on a Monday so the children need their indoor kits. Towards the end of the term it will be our turn for swimming lessons, however we will send further information closer to the time.

Our Library time is on a Friday so please can the children ensure they bring their books to exchange on this day.

To begin the autumn term the children have a transition unit based on the author and artist Oliver Jeffers. This is to help settle the children who have moved from key stage 1 as well as continuing the work from our transition day. We will be looking at some of his books, focusing on the character and plots before retelling our own stories. We will then be starting our autumn term topic called ‘Let the battle commence…’ This topic is focused on the struggle between the Saxons and Vikings to gain control of England. We will be exploring the topic through role play, art and reading a variety of sources. The children will be imagining what it was like to live in the Saxon and Viking times and learning how things were different from today. They will also be making their own Viking artefact. We have a busy and exciting term ahead and can’t wait to get started!
