    Red Nose Day 2021 (Mrs Pollard)

    Posted Monday, 22nd March

     

    The children and staff at Westfield took part in Red Nose Day this year by wearing colourful clothes and wacky hair. To commemorate the day, we also had a joke competition. The winning joke from each class was told in Friday's assembly and the children voted for their favourite. Congratulations to the overall winner, Lilly in 6KH for her joke: When I went to the bank, an old lady asked me to check her balance, so I pushed her over!

    Thank you to the children and everyone at home for your generous support. As a school, we raised £572 for this very worthy cause.

    Our first ever live streamed assembly! (Mr Wilkinson Computing Teacher)

    Posted Friday 15th January 2021

    Last year saw Westfield history as we published our first very assembly via video onto our website.
    Today, embracing technology even further we live streamed our first assembly on the internet via Microsoft 365 so children at home and in school could all join in together at the same time for a live real-time assembly, including the involvement of teachers both in school and at home.

    In case you missed this piece of history, you can watch a recording of our first live-streamed assembly through your Microsoft 365 account. If you're logged in it will appear in the box below, if not follow the instructions to log in. This assembly can only be viewed by anyone with a Westfield Junior School Microsoft 365 account. (If the below box is struggling to load or let you log in, try this link)

    Pickatale Online Library (Mr Wilkinson Computing Teacher)

    Posted Tuesday 12th January 2021

    We're working hard to try to ensure you have access to as much as possible whilst school is closed, and we know lots of you are really missing the school library at the moment and are desperate to choose a new reading book. We're trying to find as many online resources as we can and share them with you in order to complete work, but nothing really beats a library you can walk around.

    If you've got an Android or Apple device at home (it could be a phone or tablet) you can ask a grown up to download the Pickatale For Schools app - and using your existing learning platform username and password you can sign in to a library of hundreds of books to read on your device. Hopefully you'll find something to read!
    When downloading the app, make sure you choose Pickatale FOR SCHOOLS (with the blue parrot) to get the right app!

    Home Learning: A quick video for parents (Mr Wilkinson Computing Teacher)

    Posted Sunday 10th January 2020

    We would like the thank the many parents that with virtually no notice have managed to navigate log ins, downloading apps, working their way round unfamiliar devices and whatever else has been required in the past few days to help their children to navigate home learning - often with more than one child whilst also simulateously working from home - again!

    If you're having any technical issues please make sure you have been in touch with us - we are doing our absolute best to help as quickly as we can. Here's a quick message from our computing co-ordinator, Mr Wilkinson, that will hopefully reassure you that we are all doing our best.

    Posted Friday 18th December 2020

    We're not able to bring you any big performances or concerts at the moment, but not wanting to miss out completely, the pupils and staff of Westfield Junior School proudly present our unique rendition of Clement Clarke Moore's poem 'Twas The Night Before Christmas... Be on the lookout for a mouse, Mr Austin's Christmas hat, footballs up sweatshirts, some dancing from Year 4 teachers, lots of Christmas jumpers and the very observant may spot Mrs Marson from the office...
