Great job, Orchid class!

Well done to orchid class for their week of fundraising during the £1 challenge.

We thought we had raised £144.06 but we had actually raised £144.87 (every penny counts).

All money goes to The Helen Hodgkins Trust (a charity based in Bradford-on-Avon) who buy water filters for villages in Ghana. Our fundraising means that we have enough to buy 1 water filter to be sent out there.

For homework, the class were asked to write about their fundraising experience. Ellie has excelled herself and wrote an amazing blog post.

Well Done Bella

In English, Orchid class have been learning the poem ‘The Highwayman’ and today I was thrilled to listen to Bella recite it beautifully. Well done Bella, fantastic work!

Westwood Gardeners Celebrate!

Today at our after school gardening club the children were able to celebrate their hard work and harvest vegetables that they had planted earlier in the season. Led by Ms Brown and our dedicated group of parent volunteers, everyone got involved and there was lots of excitement as, in the very pleasant late afternoon sunshine, the adults helped the children to cook the fruits of their labour. A very interesting slow worm even made an appearance! Well done everyone, you have all worked so hard and you have transformed an area of our school grounds into a really lovely vegetable patch. Thank you.

Well done Mrs. Hobson and the Orchid dancers!

A big Well Done to Mrs. Hobson who led the Orchid class dancers in a phenomenal performance at the Forum, Bath last week as they danced in front of a packed audience. All the children have written on the class blog about how the experience was such an exhilarating one for them and it is amazing that she has given them the chance to feel that way on such a huge stage.

Well done the the dancers themselves who sent their grown-ups home that night feeling so immensely proud of every single one of them. Goose-bumps all round.

Well done Felix!

I want to say a big ‘well done’ to Felix because this week, in Maths and English, he has had his hand up to answer questions, or to add comments to discussion, most of the time. In fact, on Thursday, I had to officially retire him for a while to let his classmates have time to think, his brain was working so fast! Well done, Felix and I am very proud of you!

Well Done Wesley

Wesley has been doing some fantastic writing this morning, concentrating on the letter ‘p’. Well done Wesley!
