Father’s Friday

Today saw the return of Father’s Friday to Westwood with iford School and once again I must thank all of the dads and special people from home for joining us and for making the day such tremendous fun and so successful.

Beginning the day with a jam packed celebration assembly, full of wonderful achievements from both in and out of school, our hall was buzzing with excitement and almost standing room only! From there, it was onto classes for a day of inspiring international learning with our staff, focusing on India, Hungary, The Aztecs and Russia, with everyone who came along immersing themselves in the true spirit of the day. The atmosphere was fantastic. Some of our dads even brought their lunch and joined us in the hall before all playing a game of lunchtime football at the Westwood Etihad! This afternoon the Westwood Radio broadcasters also welcomed their dads into the studio for a very special Father’s Friday broadcast full of fun, banter and good humour. 

We are so lucky to have an incredibly supportive parent community who work so well alongside our school  and it was such a delight to see so many people having fun around the building today.  Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedules to join us and make the day special. Here are some fabulous photos of the day (thank you Mrs Batten) and also our broadcast from this afternoon’s show. 

Happy Father’s day everyone.

Quality International Learning

I’ve made it one of my goals this term to blog more regularly about the fantastic things that are taking place at our school. Today was another of those days when I had the opportunity to integrate technology and innovation to make the learning fun, exciting and different for the children in Clover class.

All year we have been regularly linking up with our friends in Room 104 of Georgetown Elementary school in Hudsonville, Michigan as part of an international project to share learning, social and cultural experiences and just enjoy talking to other children from around the world. Today was the last time we linked up as our friends in the USA finish for the summer on Friday. We’ve loved talking to them and learning about what they learn, where they live and how the weather differs! Here we all are for one last time in a Google Hangout together and we also asked and answered questions through CoveritLive.
