Westcliffe Primary School

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


Summer Term (1st Half)

This half term our topic will be ‘By The Seaside’. We will be exploring the physical and man-made features of the Seaside. We will be comparing our local area to a local seaside resort and drawing information from a simple map. 


We are going to be finding about information from non-fiction books and enjoying fiction books like ‘Faster, Faster’ by Benedict Blathwayt, ‘Tom and Lucy go to the Seaside’ by Shirley Hughes and The Singing Mermaid by Julia Donaldson.


In Expressive Arts and Designs we will be testing various materials in order to create a Pier. We will use other media to add features such as a beach and the sea.

In Maths we are continuing our discoveries of repeating patterns and learning about odd and even numbers. We will also be finding out some numbers can be shared equally and doubling facts.


Our Reception environment is welcoming, dynamic and language rich. We ensure children can learn and explore safely, whilst developing their self-regulation and independence. The children learn through a balance of adult directed activities and child initiated play.


The Reception teachers are Miss Housley and Mrs Murray.
