Dear Parents/Carers,

WESTFIELD ARTWORK

At long last our Resilience Artwork has arrived from the printers and is in the process of being put on show in the corridors of the school.
Each piece shows one of our Westfield Resilience Words e.g. Integrity, Enthusiasm, Optimism, Curiosity. Most of our pupils will recognise their artwork which will be on display for many years to come.

The pieces are wonderfully colourful and vibrant and definitely add some ‘ooh la la’ to the school.

YEAR SIX PGL RESIDENTIAL

Last week 50 pupils and 7 members of staff plus one of our Governors spent an exciting week on the Isle of Wight. The following activities were tried by (nearly) all: abseiling, vertical challenge, aeroball, tunnelling, survivor, Jacob’s ladder and problem solving. In the evening we had a campfire, a disco and an orienteering activity. Mr Lambert organised some brilliant afternoon activities: Osborne House (Queen Victoria’s home), Allum Bay where we saw glass blowing and sweet making plus an afternoon at the local beach where everyone got soaked – luckily the weather was great all week (until Friday). Thank you to all our wonderful staff who gave up their time to come with us: Mrs Elwell, Mrs Smith-Phelps, Mr Millar, Mr Lambert, Mrs Charity, Mrs Mayfield and Mrs Chattaway, one of our Parent Governors.

YEAR TWO FAMILY BREAKFAST

It was really great to see so many families come to our school to have breakfast with their children who will be our new year three pupils next year! There were over 100 tickets sold and hopefully everyone had enough to eat. I would like to thank our catering staff, as well as Mrs Elwell, Mr Stynes and Mrs Holt, who all came in at 7am to start cooking. Thank you also to Mrs Charity, Mrs Smith-Phelps, Mrs Halliday, Mrs Richards-Jones, Mrs Mayne, Miss Haggie, Mrs Carsley, Mrs Patten, Mrs Rowe, Mrs Sodiq, Mrs Cheney who all came in early to support this event – I hope I have not forgotten anyone!!

YEAR SIX DANCES

This week, our year six pupils have started learning their dance routines for their Leavers’ Party – the theme is ‘Queen’ and I have had a great week listening to the music (which I love) and having a quick peek at what they are doing. The dance-off is going to amazing this year!!

Best wishes, Margaret Greig
