On Friday the whole school came together to celebrate World of Work Week. We talked about the Life Skills that we will need and a little bit about the people that came into school this week.
Four Primary 7s spoke about their time on a work placement. They showed us pictures and talked about their experience.
Every year group gave a presentation on the healthy snack they plan to make and sell as part of our Enterprise work. All the presentations were excellent and we look forward to trying the healthy snacks!
On Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 March the photographer from Tempest is coming to the school to take photographs for all the Primary classes.
P1 and P7 will have class, individual and family photographs taken and P 2 – 6 will have individual and family photographs taken. If you would like a family photograph please send a letter to your older child’s class teacher.
I would ask that the children wear a white shirt and school tie on these days if at all possible.
The whole school had a great time playing and/or supporting their Houses in our annual competition. Games took place throughout the day organised by Mrs Park and the House Captains.
Well done to everyone who took part and for supporting your House with such enthusiasm!
We are looking forward to welcoming many visitors to West over the next few days who will be talking about their jobs and skills.
Look out for blog updates about World of Work Week from our new bloggers.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. It’s great to see the children back and to hear their Christmas stories. We were so proud of them when they sang at the Brewers Fayre and it was great to see so many families coming out to support them.
We have a busy term ahead in Primary 3 where we will be continuing our Hanukkah topic for the next few weeks. This will be followed by a Healthy Eating topic where we will be making healthy snacks for the school enterprise challenge. We will then go on to learn about major organs in the human body and through this, we will gain some Heartstart skills.
Children will be enjoying some art work based around a famous artist and will learn about the festival of Easter.
We would really appreciate more volunteers from Primary 3 parents to come in and talk about their job at World of Work week. We want the children to hear about as many different occupations as possible and I would encourage you to play a role in this. Teachers are on hand to ask relevant questions and the sessions are very short and informal. If you are interested please contact Mrs.Wiszniewski. The week starts on Monday 22nd February.
Teachers are keen to work in partnership with parents and strive to keep you informed. There will be a parents’ evening in April, however please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns before that. We would like to see parents in and around the school on a more regular basis and would like to offer library sessions during World Book Week for you to visit the school library with your child during this week.
We are pleased to say that the children in Primary 3 are great at bringing their gym kit. They continue to become successful learners and effective contributors as they grow and develop throughout the year.
We appreciate all the support for homework as this really enhances your child’s success.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Mrs.Ormond and P3 staff
