Welcome To Reception




Westgate Primary School


       Monday 21st May 2018






Dear Parents/ Carers,

Royal Wedding fever continues! The children are really enthusiastic about this topic and we hope you all had chance to watch some of media coverage of the big event over the weekend. Hopefully you have enjoyed watching the wedding we celebrated at Westgate today, equally as much.


In school this week we will be


  • Watching clips of the Royal wedding
  • Acting out our own Westgate wedding and wedding breakfast
  • Writing what gifts we would give to Prince Harry and Meghan
  • Writing about what the wedding party wore
  • Looking at subtraction/taking away
  • Drawing self portraits for the front of our school reports


At home you could


  •  Practise practical subtraction –e.g collect a number of objects such as teddies and then take some of those objects away and count how many are left
  • Collect all your Giant Wiggle sponsor money
  • Discuss what gifts may be appropriate for a bride and groom
  • Look at some pictures from the press of Prince Harry and Meghan and discuss what they are wearing


Thank you for all your support and sponsorship for the Giant Wiggle. Please can we ask that all sponsorship money be handed into class teachers or the office by Wednesday 23rd May.

 As the weather is getting warmer the children are more inclined to take their jumpers/cardigans off in school and these can then get misplaced/lost. Please ensure all your child’s jumpers/cardigans are labelled as we have had a few go missing. Keep your eyes open for jumpers labelled Riley, Sienna or AJ and if you find them please return them to school.

For your outdoor homework over half term, can you take a trip to the beach or the park, or go hunting for pebbles on the prom or even a walk in a forest.?

Our writers of the week this week are Jack Turner, Riley Gibson and Chris Hodgson. Well done to you, keep up the good work.

Wishing you a lovely, and hopefully warm, half term.


Thank you for all your support and please always feel free to pop in if you have a questions or queries.

Mrs Livingstone, Miss Evans, Mrs Charnley, Mrs Ronayne and Mrs Westworth
