Congratulations to Mollie in 7HM for winning the 'Advance Your Wellbeing' Christmas card competition. A career in design is awaiting!
Great to see so many of our pupils supporting Anti-bullying week by sporting some rather bizarre socks today. We look forward to a calm week of celebrating difference and learning how to support others.
Congratulations to Rhys, Abi, Eva and others for their merit certificates. Great to see so many year 7s collecting certificates and displaying the learning values we promote in school.
For Children in Need today 7PC were challenged to 'act their age' whereby they had to find the sum of all their ages (including staff members) and use that number for a challenge. The total of all the ages was 434 which seemed crazy especially as their own class teacher only added 25 to that number!!! After lengthy discussion, the children decided they wanted to draw 434 Pudsey-themed characters to create a collage- the results were amazing! Well done 7PC!
The children in 7BD have been enjoying having some time to read and complete other activities with books.
Ania has been making poppies to sell for Armistice Day to celebrate her birthday. So far she has made a whopping £100. It's lovely to see the talent children have at home and school. Well done.
7BD's amazing art homework!
Congratulations to Erin K 7LM for bringing in and showing us all the work she completed during lockdown, well done Erin!
7LM put on their goggles today and became scientists. Using bunsen burners, they tested how long it would take to boil water during timed intervals.
In their PE lessons, year 7s had the challenge to see who could jump the furthest.
On Wednesday 16th, we held our annual Treasure hUnt within school to launch our topic of 'Conflict' to the year 7s. There was some incredible artefacts on display this year including a prisoner of war's lung x-ray, an African spear and shield as well as a range of our military paraphernalia. The year 7s were excellent and really showed all the learning values we promote in Westacre.
On Tuesday 8th we had a fantastic day out on the field working through a range of team building games. From shoe towers to parachutes, to goal ball and foot golf, the children certainly showed how well they could work together and support each other. A great start to the term year 7.
