STEM Day January 2019

 

Following the success of previous STEM days over the last few years, we organised yet another STEM day at the start of the Spring term for local Year 4 pupils. This time the theme was 'Exercise' and we welcomed pupils from  Ombersley, Tibberton, Hindlip and St Peters. Once more, Westacre teachers Mr Barber and Miss Steenson were joined by Mrs Fisher and Mrs Park from the Prince Henry's High School in Evesham in organising different workshops for the children. Well done to all of the pupils for their enthusiasm and skill throughout this STEM day!

 

We were also pleased to be able to offer a number of our own Year 5 pupils the opportunity to take part in the sessions! These pupils were a credit to themselves and our school, as they showed our visitors what a well-mannered, knowledgeable and enthusiastic group of young people they are. This included a group of our gifted and talented Year 5 scientists and mathematicians, who take part in a special 'challenge' session around the same theme.

 

Well done also to the Year 5 pupils who helped with the organisation of the day and supported the visiting children who joined us for the day.

Whole School Theatre Trip

 

For this year's annual whole school theatre trip, staff and pupils from all year groups made the journey to The Birmingham Repertory Theatre to watch a production of The Wizard of Oz. Everyone had a wonderful time and we now look forward to next year's visit!

 

 

Attenborough House Celebrate

 

As we approach the end of Autumn term, it is time for the special reward to all of the children in the house that earned the most house points. All pupils can earn house points for their particular house by earning bronze, silver and gold certificates linked to our 6Rs Learning Behaviours, as well as through participation in our various house competitions. This term’s winning house is Attenborough. The children and staff in this house showed much effort in incorporating much green into their clothes as part of a special non-uniform day! Well done to all of Attenborough house for the achievement this term, as well as all of the pupils in the other houses who offered their congratulations on this day of celebration!

‘The Best Christmas Present In The World’ Variety Performance

 

Again this year, pupils from all year groups worked together to put on a special Christmas production! The show was based around the Michael Morpurgo book 'The Best Christmas Present in the World', in recognition of 2018 being the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War One. We were incredibly impressed by the talents of all the children involved, which included drama, poetry, dance and singing. Thank you to the hundreds of parents and other family members, who came along to enjoy the show and support their children (as well as join in with a special whole school song at the end!), and for their kind donations at the end of the show that raised over £270 for school. Thank you also to the Friends of Westacre group who organised refreshments and a raffle during the interval, which also helped raise funds towards a new stage and lighting for school. Have a look at some photos and videos from the show below!

Droitwich Christmas Lights Switch On

 

As part of our town’s Christmas lights switch on festival, our school choir were delighted to perform some of their songs to the local community. The children have been practising during sessions after school and at lunchtime over the last few weeks and definitely entertained the crowds with their impressive singing and harmonising.

Children In Need

 

At Westacre, we have raised money for BBC Children In Need in two different ways. Children donated a £1 to wear pyjamas, onesies and dressing gowns for the day! During the week, they also donated any loose change they had to our very own Pudsey, who spent the week collecting money on our school stage. We are very pleased to announce that a grand total of £550 has been raised as a result of the generosity of Westacre pupils and their families. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

Remembrance

Westacre was proud to take part in commemorating the centenary of the signing of the armistice to end World War 1. The children spent time learning about and dscussing the significance of Remembrance day. Some children went out and around Droitwich to explore local memorials. All the pupils made their own poppies with individual messages of thanks. Our whole school assembly was a thoughtful occasion with children sharing poetry and stories they had researched.On Sunday our head boy and girl tok part in the Remembrance service in Droitwich town centre. Look at our community page to see how one of our pupils and his family commemorated Remembrance.

Macmillan Cake Sale

 

We are incredibly proud to reveal that Westacre pupils and their familes helped to raise £358 for Macmillan Cancer Support during this year's cake sale. There were an amazing number, range and quality of cakes in school - all of which were thoroughly enjoyed by children who donated money to buy them! As always, the generosity of our pupils and their families has been very impressive - this is a super amount of money for a wonderful cause!

National Fitness Day

 

After a day of energetic activities around school, all of the pupils and staff enjoyed a special half an hour together outside on the school PE facilities. There was a great community feel around school as we marked National Fitness Day and we look forward to repeating many of these activities during our weekly Fitness Friday sessions.
