    Thursday 25th May - International Day (Miss Bray)

    Today, Westfield have taken part in another successful 'International Day'. We were really impressed by all the costumes children wore and would like to thank those who donated to the school in Zambia. The children have enjoyed lots of fun activities relating to different countries around the world. See some of our activities below...

    If children would like to make the ice-cream they made with Mrs Folly, then the recipe can be found here: http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/educators/classroom-resources/activities/instant-ice-cream

    Year 5: ‘Should we save the rainforest?’ debate

    In English this week, Year 5 have been finding out about deforestation. First, the children researched the reasons for deforestation. Then they split into groups (farmers, Amazon Tribe, government workers, Greenpeace members, Doctors of tropical medicine and a travel company) and they wrote down reasons why they would/would not want to cut down the rainforest. Next, they wrote a speech to try to persuade people to choose their argument and finally they were able to argue their cases for or against in a class debate. All the children worked really hard on their speeches and debated well. Please ask your child to tell you their arguments. 5LB finally voted to save the rainforest!

    An Animal Experience! (Mr Wilkinson)

    Posted on Tuesday 16th May 2017
    On Monday 15th May, Year 5 had a visit from ‘The Animal Experience’ who brought some rainforest animals into school for us to meet. We learned about milk snakes, chameleons, millipedes, hissing cockroaches, blue-tongued skinks, ball pythons and Argentinian Tegus.  We found out where they live in the rainforest and what they like to eat and much more… Finally, we got to hold or touch some of the animals. It was a great experience!

    Netball Tournament (Badcock Jorja)

    On  Wednesday 3rd May Westfield Girls A team went to the Cambridgeshire Glass Stadium to play in a Netball tournament. These were the results:

    RAB Butler 0 Westfield 2;  Thorndown 0 Westfield 2; Westfield 2 The Vine 0; Westfield 4 Burleywell 0; St Phillips 0 Westfield 5; Milton 1 westfield 2. There were some great shots from Hannah and Millie and a amazing shot from Lauren. We got into the quarter finals.                                                     

    We played Bourne and won 3-0 with an assist from Emily for Jorja to score, that meant we got into the semi finals playing sye.

    With Orla doing some great defending we won 3-2 leading us into the finals.

    We played Histon with Aliza doing some great saves but sadly we all let one in so it ended up 0-1 to them, but we came 2nd in the whole tournament. We would like to thank Mr Austin for coaching us.

    Year 4 Egyptian Day (Mrs Pollard)

    Posted Wednesday, 3rd May

     

    The year 4 children have enjoyed a visit from History Off the Page today, providing them with an exciting Egyptian Day! They spent the morning trying out a variety of activities, including pottery, hieroglyphics and mummification, as well as making wax combs and carving wax tablets. The afternoon consisted of acting and dancing, finishing with a banquet. Thank you to the parent helpers who gave up their time to help make the day such a success!
