29-07-2016 - Farewell from Westlands Primary!Dear Children, Parents and Carers.To begin with...wow!So we have reached the end of another fabulous year here at Westlands Primary School. It seems to have flown by so quickly and there have been so many tremendous things happening all the time that it shows, once again, what a brilliant school we are!The news feed on the website is a good record of lots of the things that happened, I would recommend that you spend some time scrolling back through it to remind yourself of the huge range of enrichment activities we have provided, as well as by seeing our Facebook page and press release stories!We are so lucky to be working with such interesting, intelligent, thoughtful and hard-working children who love to learn. We’ve enjoyed finding exciting topics for you to learn about and we have truly had some spectacular events happening in school. The Empiribox Science resource has been really popular this year – our children love the science experiments which have certainly ‘gone with a bang’!Sport has really taken centre court throughout the year with the addition of our two popular Sports Teaching Assistants, Mr Kemp & Mr Cannon, and we’ve had a huge range of sporting activities on offer for lots of children to take part in. We have even taken part in some Cross-Trust sporting events, one of which being the swimming gala (which we won!).As many of you will know, the curriculum changed this year and expectations of what the children should achieve are now higher than ever.We are so proud of our children and the dedication they have shown to their learning – in all year groups from EYFS through to Year 6. The children have progressed very well over the year and we have had very positive comments from visitors to the school about the children’s behaviour, the quality of the children’s work in their books and their highly engaged behaviour for learning.I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the school community, including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, children, for the huge amount of patience and understanding you have all shown while the building work is being carried out. The plan for Term 1 is on our website and we will do everything we can to keep you as up to date as possible.We are returning to school on 1st September, so be sure to be there! I know Sam will, especially as he won this amazing bicycle from the PTFA for his incredible attendance this year (maybe you'll win one next year - be sure to be in school!).Many thanks for your ongoing support and for Westlands Primary's best year yet!Louise HopkinsHeadteacher
29-07-2016 - Farewell Year 6!
The end of the final term for Year 6 is forever an emotional time, looking back not only upon the previous year, but all the time that each pupil has spent at Westlands Primary School.
From Year R, adorable and nervous about starting school for the first time, all the way up to now, with confident and mature young students ready for the next stage in their education; its certainly been an experience!
Whether you've been with us since Year R or have joined us more recently, know now that WPS and your Year 6 teachers: Mrs Lonergan, Miss Wareham, Mr Broughton, Miss Weston and Mrs Cresswell, are all extraordinarily proud of each and every one of you.
From your first day at school and all the way up to your very last day of Year 6, there are so many highlights for each of you that we can scarcely recall them all, but we know for sure you'll always remember your tremendous SATs efforts, the incredible week at Belchamps, and your fantastic school production!
So, we give a final WELL DONE to Year 6 and wish you all the very best of luck as you continue onwards and THANK YOU for being as wonderful children as you are.
It's been a priviledge.
22-07-2016 - Farewell from Year 4!
When asking the Year 4 team of their highlights throughout the year, they almost overwhelmed Mr Wood with all the fantastic things they've been up to and will be looking back happily upon!
Just some of the things they mentioned were the exotic totem poles in the Year Garden, the time the Year spent the day excavating artefacts, making mummies and drawing cartouches, when Argent Class won Sports Day (Mr Shepherd in particularly liked this one) and the Super Hero writing!
What a list from Year 4!
However, what the two Year 4 teachers were most keen to emphasise of their time in Year 4 were what was for them the best bit...the fantastic classes!
Constantly filling their days with laughter and intrigue in their learning; Year 4 have been absolutely tremendous and Mr Kimber, Mr Shepherd, Mrs Nwokena, Mrs Sandy and Mrs Holmes wish each of them the very best of luck as they move into Year 5.
WELL DONE Year 4 for a fabulous year; see you in September!
22-07-2016 - Farewell from Year 3!
Year 3 have enjoyed a year of so much change as the children have grown from Key Stage 1 pupils into very-much-so grown up pupils ready to take on the rest of what Key Stage 2 has to offer!
With highlights such as the trip to Kent Life for Stone Age Day, all the Empiribox Science experiments, Super Hero writing and the trip to Otterden Estate; it's no wonder Year 3 have come so far over one year!
Whilst the Year 3 team have loved all these moments too, Mrs Bushell, Mrs Killick, Miss Howells, Mrs Moloney, Miss Ecclstone, Mrs Cuffe, Mrs Oswald and Mrs Bannister have agreed no part of the year could be better than the amazing children they have worked with every single day!
To the Year 3 pupils; WELL DONE on a brilliant year and we look forward to seeing more of you when you're in Year 4!
