Our winning poem was from Lillie M in Year 1 at Waterthorpe Nursery Infant School:
Pick up your dog’s pooh,
Or it will go on my shoe.
I will walk it through the door,
or the carpet,
or the floor.
Mum will get very mad,
For a new carpet we’ve just had!
2nd prize went to Sophie in Year 2 at Waterthorpe NI School:
When you take your dog for a pooh,
Always take a bag with you.
Put the bag on your hand,
Otherwise, in it you will land.
Never leave it on the floor,
Or I will walk it through the door.
3rd prize went to the School Council at Waterthorpe NI School:
When you put your dog on a lead,
Don’t forget there’s something else you need.
Before you leave your own front door,
Collect your poo bags; don’t leave it on the floor!
Bag it, tie it, look for a bin,
When you see one put it in.
Dog poo, dog poo, put it in the bin.
Dog poo, dog poo, keep it off my skin!
Year 3 day out exploring
Year 3’s had a great day out visiting Creswell Crags as part of their creative curriculum topic.
During the visit the children did a selection of activities based on the Stone Age and Prehistoric Britain, including reassembling a skeleton and spotting 27 caves, one of which they toured. This cave had particularly large spiders and mummified rats, which the children found extremely interesting.
As part of an Religious Education topic at Brookhouse, a visit from The Education Group was arranged. They worked with classes in Y4 and Y5 teaching them dances and exploring the Hindu and Indian Culture.
Year 3 Stone Age Day
The Year 3 children had a visit from the History Van. This was a unique, interactive experience where all the children dressed and acted as prehistoric cavemen. The children made weapons and clothes and designed their own jewellery. The whole day was a great success and was enjoyed thoroughly by children and staff.
Year 4 pupils go back in time
Our year 4 children enjoyed going back to Roman times when the History Van arrived in school.
The day consisted of interactive workshops, dressing up as Romans and re-enacting important events from this period.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, asking lots of questions and showing huge amounts of interest as they participated during in the day.
Year 5 trip to Yorkshire Museum and Danelaw Centre
As part of their Viking Topic, our Year 5 children visited the Yorkshire Museum and Danelaw Centre in York.
Despite the cold weather, the children had a fantastic time learning about the way the Vikings lived. They made clay oil lamps, ground flour to make bread and practised their battle skills! It was great fun and the children had a brilliant day.
On 14th October 2016 the School Councils from schools across the Westfield Family of Schools joined together for a team building day at Rother Valley. Our theme this year was 'Working Together'. Children had previously met together at Westfield School to plan the activities for the conference.
The children worked in mixed teams at Rothervalley, with Westfield Sports leaders, on a range of problem solving activities. This was an exciting event that brought together children from all of our schools. The children enjoyed the opportunity to meet and work with pupils from other schools. The School Council members all made their schools proud through their fantastic behaviour, enthusiasm and team spirit!
A big thanks to Mr Millns and the Westfield Sports Leaders for their excellent support.
