Parliament Trip

 

Our school MP's had an exciting opportunity of visiting the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday 10th January. Although it was an early start with us leaving school at 6:00am, children enjoyed the coach journey to London - particularly when we got into the city centre! When we arrived, the children met their tour guide and were given ear pieces so that they could clearly hear what was being explained to them. 

Children entered through the Sovereign's Entrance to Parliament that is usually only meant for the monarch however  as we were on an education tour, we were lucky enough to go through it! We then were able to see where the King would get ready before entering parliament. After this, children were taken to the House of Lords. Unfortunately we were unable to see the House of Commons however this was made up by the fact that we witnessed the Procession of the Speaker, a ceremony that happens everyday before parliament is opened.

The Parliament tour finished with a workshop that focussed on democracy and fairness. Children learned about the history of parliament and the Suffragettes who campaigned for women to be able to vote. Our school MP's had a wonderful experience and were even able to meet our local MP, Nigel Huddleston, a couple of days later when he came to visit them! 

Christmas Assembly

 

We ended the term with a special whole school Christmas assembly! Lily in Year 5 started us off playing lots of festive tunes on the piano and the winners of the recent Computing Christmas Card Design House Competition were announced - congratulations to Kornelia in Year 7 who was the overall winner. The main event saw all four houses competing against each other in three festive challenges - present wrapping, T-shirt designing and paper chain making! In the end, a sing-off between everyone in Attenborough and Bannister house was required. As the school music's leader, Miss Dutton had the final say and Attenborough were crowned winners of the event after their enthusiastic rendition of Jingle Bells! They now receive an additional 100 house points. The assembly ended with the whole school coming together to sing and dance along to Sam Ryder's 'You're Christmas To Me' song that was so popular during our recent Christmas Production. A perfect ending to the term - Merry Christmas everyone!

During Christmas Jumper Day, children enjoyed a special Christmas Lunch in the school hall.  As well as a delicious lunch, the children enjoyed dancing and singing along to some festive Music alongside their teachers! The festive spirit has definitely reached Westacre Middle School!

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 Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. Everyone had a wonderful time with many staff members and pupils suggesting it had been one of the best shows we've ever seen during our many visits to the Rep! 

Primary STEM Challenge

 

Over thirty of our most able mathematicians and scientists in Years 5 & 6 took part in this year's Stemworks Primary STEM Challenge. This involved the children working together in pairs to design and create their own bridge installation system before then presenting to the rest of the group about how they felt that had met all of the design criteria. Sarah from Stemworks commented on how impressed she was with the children's reasoning and problem solving! In the end, she chose James and Harry from Year 6 as the overall winning pair - the boys will go on to represent Westacre in a Worcestershire STEM event later in the school year. Well done to every single pupil for their achievements with this challenge!

Therapy Dog

 

We were delighted to welcome Ruby the dog - our new weekly visitor who will be working alongside some of our children! Therapy dogs are well known for helping to relax children and encourarge their participation in school life.

Remembrance

 

For Remembrance Day this year, our whole school community again came together to hold a minute's silence to remember all of the sacrifices made in past conflicts. We also displayed the poppies children in all classes had made during the week to remember fallen soldiers from the local area, and heard one of the war poems that Year 7 had written. On Remembrance Sunday itself, Head Boy Henry and Head Girl Laila joined Mrs Evans and Mrs Doolin to lay a Westacre wreath in the Droitwich Remembrance service.

Year 7 Leadership Roles

 

Following lots of impressive written applications, Year 7 children have now been appointed the roles of Prefect, House Captain, Sports Captain and Sports Leader. During a whole school assembly, the roles were announced and the children received their special lanyards to wear throughout the year. The children are incredibly excited and we look forward to seeing the impact they have this year.

School Library Opening

 

For their first task as Head Girl and Head Boy, Laila and Henry joined Mrs Evans and Mrs Burton in the official opening of our amazing, new school library. The children have been very excited about the new look and are looking forward to spending time in there choosing books and reading.

Head Boy and Girl

 

Here are Head Boy Henry and Head Girl Laila. They have been chosen to take on these vitally important roles for the 2023/24 school year. They will work alongside the other MPs in the Westacre Pariliament but will also work closely with Mrs Evans, Mrs Doolin and Mr Barber in making important decisions about school life. Well done Laila and Henry for your appointment - we are sure you will be amazing role models this year!
