Westwood with Iford School News

A very Happy New Year from us all at Westwood School. We were delighted to see so many of you at our Christmas Fair and now we are back for another exciting term.

Thank you to those of you who attended our Westwood Oral History Project launch meeting. We are looking forward to getting this underway and are now in a position to start compiling our group of community members who would like to share their memories. If you, or someone you know, would be happy to chat to some of our wonderful children about living and growing up in the village, do please get in touch. Our email address is heritage@westwoodwithiford.org or you can call the school on 862408. We would love to hear from you.

Although this is a short term we have so much to look forward to - our dancers are taking part in another Bath Forum extravaganza, and we have a whole school Ocarina day coming up. You can keep up to date with all that is happening at your local school on our website: westwoodwithiford.org or via our class blogs at westwoodblogs.org.

Westwood Heritage Oral History Project

At Westwood with Iford School we will soon be starting an exciting project and we are looking for people that would like to share their memories of living, working, growing up and going to school in the Westwood area.

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 heritage@westwoodwithiford.org if you would like to get involved.

Westwood with Iford School News

A big hello again from us all at Westwood with Iford Primary School. We are very much back in to the excitement of a new term, having welcomed our new reception entrants who have settled wonderfully well.

The year has already got off to a fantastic start with an exciting project planned that, we hope, will involve as many members of the Westwood Community as possible. The Westwood Oral History project will focus on understanding and sharing the rich heritage of the village and local community. We would like to bring members of the community together to share their life memories and experiences of living, schooling and working in Westwood over time which will be digitally recorded and preserved to share now and for years to come through interviews and live broadcasts with our pupils.

Watch this space for further information but if you are interested in taking part in this project, either with a story to tell or as a volunteer transcriber, please contact the school.

We are also looking for members of our community to join our governing body this year. Please contact the school office on 862408 if you are interested     Ian Rockey  Head teacher

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 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
