Hampshire Music Performance - October 2017

The whole school enjoyed a performance by Wendy and Sue from Hampshire Music Service. They brought along and demonstrated playing a violin, viola, cello and double bass. They told us all about the similarties and differences between the instruments. We heard a story all about a girl called Elsie and some different characters she met while searching for a 'Cool Cat'. Each animal had a different musical accompaniment. The performance finished with a piece of jazz.

Summer Fair 2017

Our Summer Fair was a great success. There were many activities on offer including performances by Year 2 country dancers and the choir, a BBQ that was enjoyed by all and lots of games for the children. We raised an impressive total of £2800 which is going towards our ongoing improvements to the Key Stage 1 playground.

There were over 100 entries in our minibeast competition and it proved very hard to choose some winners. Congratulations to everyone who took part. The minibeasts were amazing.

Thank you to everyone for their support from donations of cakes, bottles and sweets to those who helped run a stall on the day. We would also like to thank all of the businesses who donated prizes to us.

Creative Arts Week - July

We had a fantastic Creative Arts Week around the theme of Carnival. We began the week with an inspiring, motivating performance by iRock's live band. We were visited on Tuesday by Mike Griffiths who performed and worked with the whole school on Drumming, creating Samba rhythms and providing workshops. Year 2 also enjoyed drumming workshops later in the week with Mr Casselton.

In art each class created bottle top pictures, which looked amazing! We also made shakers. On Wednesday the children worked in mixed age groups to create their own headdress. All these creations were to be part of our own Westfields Infant School Carnival.

Each class had time in the hall to try out some Samba dance steps and to use our own school instruments to create some Samba music.

Parents came and joined us for the celebration of all our learning at the carnival on Friday. It was amazing!

DUG Afternoon - June

Dads, uncles, grandads and brothers came and joined us for DUG afternoon. They took part in lots of activities and lots of fun was had by all.

In Year R everyone took part in activities all about growing, including learning what happens as seeds grow.

In Year 1 they learnt about Andy Goldsworthy, a famous sculptor. He made sculptures out of natural materials. After looking at some of his work, all the children and their visitors went outside onto the field to make their own natural sculptures.

In Year 2 they did some map work, naming continents and oceans. They were then set the challenge of creating a garden that had a moving part e.g. swing or sea-saw.

Thank you very much to everyone who joined us for a fun and creative afternoon.

Sports Morning - June

The weather was kind to us on Sports Morning; the rain held off and the sun came out. The children worked in teams and enjoyed a variety of activities from bean bag balancing, hurdles, skipping, egg and spoon and many more including sprint races. We certainly have some fast runners at Westfileds.

Well done to everyone who took part. It was lovely to see the children trying to win their races and the determination they showed after falling or losing a shoe!

Thank you to parents who came to watch and support.
