This week, I have been to visit classes throughout the school and have watched the children’s learning in reading, writing and grammar. I love doing this as it lets me see our pupils doing what they do best – working hard and showing their knowledge and creativity! I would like to thank our children (and their brilliant teachers) for all their hard work.
WESTFIELD’S GOT TALENT!
Today, we had our annual Talent Show which was fantastic! This is always a big event at our school and all our pupils and staff, those performing and those in the audience, look forward to it. All the proceeds go to Comic Relief which is such a great cause. Some parents/carers wanted to know why we were not dressing up for this and the reason is that we had World Book Day a few weeks ago, where our pupils had the chance to dress up and we felt that the Talent Show was enough excitement for the day!!
At the time of writing this, I cannot say who won the competition but the winners (first, second and third places) will receive their prizes on Monday in Celebration Assembly.
Thank you to Mrs Cheney, Mr Farrell and Mrs Adams for helping me audition pupils this week and a big thank you to Mrs Osborne for giving up lots of her break times to help pupils rehearse. There were singers, actors, musicians and dancers galore (lots of ‘The Greatest Showman’ Acts).
This year our judges were our newbie staff – Ms Mayne, Ms Randall and Ms Seavers – this is always a hard job. We also had a surprise act whilst the judges deliberated... Ms Blyth and Mr Winslade, who are both very talented performers, agreed to sing ‘Barcelona’ (Freddie Mercury and Monserrat Caballe), which brought the house down!!
You see – Westfield HAS Got Talent!
SWIMMING GALA / SPORT TEAMS
Mr Woodward and Mr Farrell have organised lots of teams going to sport tournaments this term and in the summer term. We have taken part in cross country, the Swimming Gala, football and rugby with both boys’ and girls’ teams enjoying the competition element of sport. Thank you to Mr Woodward especially for all his hard work.
PARENT GOVERNOR NEEDED!
As one of our Parent Governor’s has stepped down recently, we are looking for a parent/carer who might be interested in supporting the school in this role. If you are interested and would like to find out more (without any obligation to join the Governing Body), please contact me through the school office for information.
Best wishes, Margaret Greig
