This has been a brilliant week at our school just proving that we can work hard whilst also having fun!
It has been fantastic to see so many parents and other family members attend the Autumn Term Parents’ Assembly where their child has been commended for their wonderful work, attitude and commitment to learning at our school. You should feel very proud of your children. There will be future assemblies next term and in the summer term. If you receive an invite through the post, then please keep it a secret as it is lovely to see the surprise on the children’s faces when they see someone from home in assembly!!
Year 4 staff really got into the Christmas spirit with Mrs Rowe and Mrs Patten creating a Santa’s Grotto in their stock cupboard!! Mrs R-J even managed to find Santa and the children were able to visit him. Thank you to year four staff for this- much appreciated.
12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
Mr Lambert, Mrs Lewis and Mr Winslade rehearsed the whole school in singing (and acting) the ’12 Days of Christmas’ which the children then performed to the whole staff – it was so well performed – we loved it!
REVERSE ADVENT CALENDAR
We would like to say a huge thank you to all Westfield families who supported this worthy cause especially the two parents who donated for every day. Traditionally, Westfield year four pupils have performed a Harvest Festival and donate to the Hinckley foodbank so this year all the food donated will go to this. This shows what a fantastic community we have at Westfield who support people who are struggling especially at Christmas.
FRIDAY 21ST DECEMBER
Today has been the busiest day of the week. We attended St John’s Church in the morning (there are too many of us to do this together, which is a real shame, so we had two services). Thank you to Mr Jon Berry, our Vice Chair of Governors, for arranging this. It is always lovely to hear the children singing in church. We have also had a Christmas Raffle organised by the PTA with a lot of hard work put in by Mrs Elwell. Great prizes were on offer.
Lastly, thank you so much to our lovely staff who managed to summon the energy to entertain our children today for the Goodies’ Treat! It was a brilliant panto called ‘Red Riding Hood (with a twist)’ and I don’t know how but we still had two ugly sisters! It is a Westfield tradition that both Mr Lambert and Mr Woodward dress up as pantomime dames and entertain us in true Westfield Junior School fashion!!
We hope you have a Merry Christmas and will see the children back in school on Tuesday 8th January.
Best wishes, Margaret Greig
