A most enjoyable day was had by all. It started with a coach journey of 1 and a half hours; all children were very excited. As soon as we got to the beach, we had a safety talk by the life guard who pointed out what the flags mean and the danger spots. He also told us where we could swim, but of course we only paddled our toes.

Our ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams played matches against Mr Wood’s old school. On balance, the games were fairly evenly matched, but due to lack of numbers we had to recruit some Year 5 boys to play in our ‘A’ team. This tipped things in our favour slightly, and we managed to win the game comfortably by 41 runs with some strong batting. Thank you to Ilyas who stepped into the role of Captain due to Ibrahim becoming unwell.
Y3 capacity. Last week we were able to use the front garden to measure and estimate using ml and litres. The children in Y3 worked in groups to estimate the volume each container held. This was a great help with our maths measures work. Good job the weather was fine!
Several pieces of artwork were taken to be judged in an Isa regional competition. All the children's work was beautifully completed. The judges declared one of our entries as the overall winner of the KS1 2-D art category. All the work was exhibited and looked wonderful. Well done to those that took part. The winning artwork will be sent to the national finals in November this year.
Year 3 with Mrs Williams and Mrs Jackson. Made our way to Hampshire to look at the Anglo Saxon, Iron Age and Roman houses. We decorated and made clay pots, wove wool and made a bracelet. We looked for buried treasure in our archaeological dig and made some lovely mosaics. The trip helped us understand more about the history we have been studying.
Last Wednesday evening the Year 6 children put on a soiree for the parents and staff. It was a lovely event and we were blessed with sunshine. The children performed songs or original pieces of writing, as well playing musical instruments. In the second half of the evening they performed the play 'The Queen's Speech' and were lucky enough to be able to use the outdoor classroom, in the front garden, which had been converted to a medieval castle setting. It was a wonderful evening and a fitting end to the children's time at Westbury House.
Over the last two weeks the children in Years 5 and 6 have been completing their Fiver Challenges as part of the Young Enterprise initiative. Children were split into teams and had to think of a new product. They had to conduct market research, design a logo and the product, advertise the product and eventually sell the product at stalls at Fun Day. Their challenge was to make a profit from the money they started with and at the end, all eight teams were able to return the original investment and had made a profit. Congratulations to them all, and especially to Team Xplore who made the highest profit.
