Westwood with Iford School News

Hello again from Westwood school and it's hard to believe that we're at the end of another academic year already. So much has taken place since I last wrote, including a fabulous Sports Day, two nights of first class entertainment from our older children performing Shakespeare Rocks and our Summer Fair. Thank you all so very much for supporting our school once again. We are lucky to live and work within such a wonderful community.

Academically, our Year 2 and Year 6 children have again made us proud with their commitment, hard work and attitude to learning that resulted in their deservedly strong outcomes in their SATs and everyone throughout the school has had so many diverse and exciting learning opportunities this year, it has been a joy to see.

Sadly, we are saying goodbye at the end of term to our wonderful Year 6 children and we wish them all every success in their new schools.

Finally, if you would like to be a governor at our successful school, please contact us via the school website www.westwoodwithiford.org. We would very much welcome additional members to our governing body.

Have a great summer everyone!     Ian Rockey  Head teacher

Westwood with Iford School News

Hello again from Westwood school! We have had another busy few weeks with lots to celebrate and report.

In March, our fantastic gymnasts took part in a West Wilts competition in Melksham and represented our school magnificently.

With the Scarecrow Trail less than two weeks away, please take a look at our new play equipment, gardening area and new pond as you pass through the school grounds. Also, with a Tesco grant for a polytunnel on the way and parents working really hard to assist our gardening club, it really is looking amazing.

I must say a huge well done to our brilliant Year 6 children who took their SATs last week and were a credit to the school. As always they worked incredibly hard and we could not be more proud.

Thank you if you have taken the time to listen in to our radio station, Westwood Radio. Our listener figures are booming and just last Friday Ben Prater from BBC Wiltshire’s Breakfast Show joined our show live! Find out more on radio.westwoodwithiford.org, including all of our shows to listen again.

See you at the Summer Fair on Saturday 8th July!    Ian Rockey    Head Teacher

Westwood Nursery School September 2016

 The garden has had a make-over in the summer thanks to Andrew Bennett  a builder in the village who laid a new paved area  by the garage replacing the loose stones (making the clearing up of leaves easier) and our maintenance man; Terry who has painted all the fencing and the playhouse and also gave the wooded area a good prune! The vegetable garden produced tomatoes, leeks and carrots and the pumpkins are growing nicely.

 The term has started well with 5 new children starting with us taking us to a healthy starting point of 23 children on role. We are learning about time this term and autumn

Westwood Nursery School July 16

 In our last term we learnt about different countries, when we learnt about Iceland we made erupting volcanoes and sunflowers for France as well as how to say hello and goodbye in French. Our vegetable patch produced potatoes and raspberries before we broke up and we anticipate a good crop of leeks, carrots, tomatoes and pumpkins in the autumn term.

 A massive THANK YOU! to all of you who posted Sainsbury’s vouchers through the door once more.  In total we collected 4179 a great amount but over 2000 down on last year; we have ordered some  balls, cones, a till and some scales and a saucepan set and dinner service, pictures of all that we have ordered are displayed on the nursery fence.

Our last event of the year was our leavers show which saw 13 children leave us for school. 7 children going to Westwood with Iford School and the others are attending schools in Bradford-on-Avon, Freshford, Wingfield and Trowbridge.

Our AGM is being held in the New Inn Westwood on Monday 26th September at 7.30pm.

Westwood Nursery School

 Since Easter we have welcomed 5 new families to the nursery who have moved into the village.

This term we have tied in our planning to link into the Scarecrow Hunt theme- Stories. The children have done a number treasure hunt in the park with chocolate in the treasure box when number 9 was found- Zigby’s Treasure Hunt. Little Red Riding Hood week was Safety week and there will be lots of assault courses for ‘Going on the Bear Hunt’ week. The better weather has seen us making the most of our outside space which we are hoping to further improve with money raised from the Easter egg hunt, jumble sale and scarecrow trail.

 We would like to take this opportunity to THANK all the villagers who donated items to the jumble sale we raised an incredible £631.90 Also THANK YOU for the Sainsbury’s vouchers.

 We will bid farewell to 13 children this summer - 7 children will be going to Westwood with Iford School and the others attending schools in Bradford-on-Avon, Wingfield and Trowbridge
