Friday Celebrations

Today we had our first Friday celebration assembly of the New Year and it was lovely to see so many children sharing such a diverse range of learning after only a few days, with so many parents attending  – thank you.

Celebration assembly is always my favourite day of the week and today was no exception, so well done to everyone who has come back into the new term with such a wonderful attitude to learning.

The children have also been busy outside of school too, with everything from golfers to judo experts to footballers of the week. We always encourage everyone, who has a skill, hobby or interest, outside of school, to share their achievements as I believe it is an important part of our school ethos. Please bring in your awards and certificates if you have them, we always enjoy celebrating your achievements. Our celebration assembly is always an open invitation for parents, too, so please come along if you have the time.

Have a lovely weekend everybody.

Another fine Friday…

…not the weather, but the activity within school more than made up for it. There was so much to celebrate in assembly this morning, with some super examples of great learning and many, many people who had been kind and considerate to their friends in the past week. This week we also had a great range of achievements from outside school, from bell ringing to karate to dressage and our ever popular Westwood dancer of the week.
Here are some of our children who have worked particularly hard this past week:

Certificates 2                  Certificates 1

We have also been extremely lucky to be visited by Major Oli Dinnis from the Royal Signals today. Children in KS2 were treated to a presentation and discussion about life as a communications engineer, which fits in perfectly with their topic for this term. Elsewhere in the school there has been brilliant singing in Clover class and Thistle class has been a hive of activity. All of this after a serene and extremely productive Big Write this morning. No wonder everyone is tired!

Have a great weekend everybody.

Lots to celebrate at Westwood

A very enjoyable morning spent celebrating children’s achievements, both in and out of school, as we have our first celebration assembly. There has been some fantastic learning taking place this week and this was reflected in the awards given to children. We also had many children who had acted responsibly, looked after others or had simply been helpful around school – very important qualities.

I had the pleasure to share in many children’s achievements from outside of school – from awards at flower shows, to reading challenges to sports awards. It was a joy to see so many excited and proud children sharing their hobbies and interests from their own time. I will look forward to what next week brings. The singing was super too – after only just a week!

Have a great weekend everyone.
