We have been lucky enough to receive a grant from the Heritage Lottery
Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, Westwood Heritage Oral History Project,
taking place in and around the Westwood Community. Made possible by money
raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on using the children’s
interviewing and broadcasting skills to capture precious memories from members
of the community that we can share with future generations. We will also be
holding larger groups sessions where we will broadcast Westwood Radio live from
the venue, so anyone with historic photos or artefacts will be most welcome.
We will be holding a ‘Mince Pies and Memories’ launch meeting on Thursday
7th December at 7pm in the Westwood Parish Rooms, so please come along for
a chat and to find out more.
Alternatively, please contact school
on 01225 862408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved.

Westwood Craft Fair
Thank you to all those who came along to the craft fair, which hosted a wide range of stalls selling very high quality products. We had another very successful outcome raising £95 for both Cats in Distress and Medical Detection Dogs. Both charities hosted stalls there in order to promote themselves and raise money in their own right.

Westwood Nursery School news
The children learnt about spring last term, turning their
footprints into chicks, planted carrots, sweetcorn, peas and lettuce seeds and
are busy watering them to help them grow. We looked at daffodils and had a
really good go at painting our own. We made our Mummy’s/Nanna’s a wind chime
for Mothering Sunday. This term we have been doing lots of games with numbers. Over the Easter holidays we had 4 separate
reports of youngsters in the nursery garden sitting on the playhouse roof, the
garage roof and generally messing about, on one occasion being verbally abusive
to our maintenance man. We have contacted the local police and they have asked
if anyone sees anyone in the nursery garden outside our opening times to
contact them on 101. The nursery garden is for the use of the nursery only so
please can you remind your youngsters of this as the summer holidays approach,
We would like to give a massive thank you to all the villagers who
have put their Sainsbury’s vouchers through our door, we are going to get
counting, then choose some new resources for the children.

Westwood Update January 2017
In November we made firework pictures and celebrated the
festival of Diwali; making lanterns and rangoli patterns. We dressed in spots
for Children in Need and made poppy wreaths on Remembrance Day; the children
participated in 2 minutes silence too. December saw the nursery adorned by
beautiful Christmas decorations made by the children; they all also made and
decorated a hand print with magic modelling clay to decorate the tree for the
Tree Festival held in Holy Trinity Church
in Bradford-on-Avon. We visited Westwood with Iford School
to watch their nativity performance. The children practiced their nativity
songs with enthusiasm and on December the 14th the children dressed
up and performed their songs at the village church watched by their families
and hosted by the Mothers Union. The term finished with our Christmas party and
a visit from Father Christmas.
