Autumn 2 Project

Our project this term is called ‘How long have you had that pain?’ which is all about the human body. Our learning will be focused around teeth and nutrition which links into our science focus on the digestive system. All of our foundation subjects will be linked to the project. To top it off, we will be getting a visit from Warburton’s Bread Company and a local Dental Nurse to apply our knowledge on healthy eating and hygiene to our every day lives.

Rights Respecting Schools

West Town Lane Academy is a Rights Respecting School. This means that all of the children are made aware of their rights as outlined by the UN convention. It is important that they understand that these are what they are ALL entitled to have and no-one can take these away from them. Every class has a charter outlining some of these rights. They look great so keep an eye out as you are around the classrooms.

General Information

Every day, the children will have an English and Maths lesson as a whole class. Afternoons will be filled with foundation subjects, all set within the context of our current project.

The children now change their own reading book in the school library. We will take them down once a week but the children can change their books more frequently if needed. Now that their books are longer we encourage children to not rush through them and even try re-reading a book before changing it. They should be able to recall the story’s events, describe the characters and identify language patterns such as rhyming in the book they are reading. Please try to listen to your child read regularly – this can even be for only 10 minutes. If they read to themselves, help their learning by asking them questions about what they have read.

The best time to speak to your class teacher is at the end of the day, after all the children have left. Occasionally due to meetings this will not be possible. However, we will always be happy to arrange an alternative time to talk to you.
