End of term...

Owing to the significant number of pupils and staff who are ill as a result of an extremely infectious virus the governors have taken the decision to close the school a day early in order to safeguard the health of the rest of the school population. I am sure you appreciate that this decision has not been taken lightly but we have more than 100 pupils suffering from the illness.

School will be closed from Thursday December 20 th and will reopen on Wednesday January 9 th.

I hope you all have a very happy, peaceful and healthy festive season.

Happy Christmas!

Despite an unbelievable amount of children being absent from school due to colds, flu, sickness, headaches and high temperatures, the remaining Key Stage 2 children this week gave 3 superb musical performances. Featuring songs, carols, poems, instrumental performances and our 'award winning' school choir, parents and careers where all highly entertained.
 See you in 2013!

Choir Success

Many congratulations to our fabulous school choir who came 1st in the Westfield School Choir competition winning £500 for the school. The children really pulled out all the stops and beat off the other schools with their beautiful version of 'Old Man Winter', as well as wonderful renditions of Silent Night (Stille Nacht) and 'This Child'; being judged on different categories including accuracy, posture and tone. Thank you again to the parents who came to support the children, Trent Barton for their services to take the children to and from town and to Mr Roberts for putting together the music. Well done choir - you've made us very proud!

PS Apologies for the low resolution videos, due to the large file size of the high resolution. The children still sound wonderful!

Panto Treat

It's been a busy week in Key Stage 1 this week with two performances to parents of the Key Stage One Nativity 'Off to Bethlehem' and the separate Foundation Stage Nativity '***' which were all enjoyed by a full hall of supporting parents. On Friday all the Year 1 and 2 pupils enjoyed a trip to the pantomime to see 'Peter Pan'. With lots of classic lines and poor jokes the children had a wonderful time.

We're off to Bethlehem.....

It's nativity time again and this year our Year 1 and 2 pupils are taking us 'Off To Bethlehem! In a full dress rehearsal, the children performed wonderfully well to all the Staff, Foundation Stage and Key Stage 2 pupils in preparation for their full performances to parents. We saw some superb acting from Mary and Joseph, Kirthi and Oliver, and a beautiful solo from Angel Gabriel James.Well done to all the children for speaking so clearly and to all the teachers who put it all together!

Choir success

Well done to the school choir who, yet again, made it through the first stage of the Westfield School Choir competition. The children, led by Mrs Nash, sang three songs beautifully to sing again next in the final next Wednesday. Many thanks to the parents who came to support the children and to Trent Barton for their services to take the children to and from town.
