Welcome to Westlea school- we hope that you and your family are safe and well. 

We strive to provide a nurturing, stimulating, engaging curriculum for your children.

We will be spending the first few weeks getting to know each other and linking our activities to the children's interests.

The children will be taking part in daily phonics sessions and we will be updating Class Dojo on what we have learned that week. We will also be holding a Phoncs/Reading meeting in the next half term 

Books will be sent home and will be changed after quarantine.

Remember snack money is £1.20 each Monday. 


PE will be on Wednesday and Friday The children should come ready for hall time in some gym clothes and appropriate footwear. 

Dojo rewards  is a great way for the children to be rewarded for everything fabulous that they do! We have sent home log in details for you to be kept notified whenever your child receives a dojo in class. Please try to register with your log in details as this is a great motivator. 

If you ever need to speak to us please use the Class Dojo for messages. 

We will be encouraging the children to develop their fine motor skills and will have an activity for Finger Gym available each day... this might be making bracelets and necklaces by threading the beads onto string; using keys to unlock the correct locks or even trying to use tweezers to pick up and place pom poms or marbles onto a stand. These activities will develop the muscles in hands and fingers to help with beginning to hold and control a pencil for writing.
