Hello again from a very busy Westwood
school! Once again the weeks are fairly racing by with so much to celebrate! With the Scarecrow Trail just two weeks away,
please take a look at our new play equipment, all weather path and stunning
grounds as you pass through. Our gardening club have been working really hard
to make our site look glorious.
I must say a huge well done to our
brilliant Year 6 children who are taking their SATs this week and are such a
credit to the school. As always they work incredibly hard and we could not be
more proud of them.
Thank you if you have taken the time to
listen in to our radio station, Westwood Radio. Our listener figures are
booming and we have also been nominated for a Young Arias award! We will be
heading to BBC Broadcasting House this week to a special awards ceremony, so
watch this space!
Finally, a huge thank you if you came to
the Quiz Night we hosted recently. This was such an enormous success and raised
a huge amount. See you at the Summer
Fair on Saturday 22nd June!

again from Westwood School where we have had a very busy start to the year
since I last wrote to you, including a trip to London and a live radio show
from the centre of a large IT exhibition, a brilliant Safer Internet Day and a
visit from the fabulous author, Joe Berger. Once again our fabulous Orchid
class dancers took part in the West Wilts Dance Festival at the Bath Forum.
With a theme of Love, the children put on a stunning display which was
beautifully choreographed and timed to perfection. Our Hockey players also
recently took part in an inter-school tournament and came a tremendous fourth.
They were such a credit to our school and played with complete confidence. World
Book Day was another great success with an array of fantastic costumes. Each
class took their own focus for the day and the children had the opportunity to
experience some super book-based learning. Our school blogs also continue to
thrive in their content and learning, so please do take time to have a look and
we would love your comments. Head to westwoodblogs.org to find out more!
