P3/4 Superheroes

P3/4 have really busy since we have come back! We have been thinking about the qualities of superheroes and how we can be super classmates.

Leivi – We have been writing postcards.

Findlay – In Numeracy we have been practicing switchers and creating fact families.

Josh – We used ICT to create our own superheroes and made these into tray labels.

Maris – We were imagining we were superheroes and writing poems about ourselves using similies.

Callum – We were discussing what our “future self” might do as a job and recording this using Skitch or Comic Life.

Healthy Eating and the world of work with Mr Khan

Staff and pupils at Westfield would like to thank Mr Khan for giving up some of his precious time to come and talk to us during our health event.Mr Khan gave a talk to the pupils about his job and how he came to work as a chef. He had also taken the time to prepare a curry dish for the children to sample. He spoke about the creativity involved in being a chef and the variety of flavours that can be created mixing spices.

Whole school healthy picnic

Another successful health week event which nearly passed without the rain calling off play.Pupils, parents, careers and friends joined us today in the school grounds to have a healthy picnic lunch. The sun shone for nearly the whole picnic before we were covered by a cloud and had to retreat into the hall to finish off.Thanks to all who attended and made it such a success.

Sports Day Fun

Pupils from Westfield today had their sports day where they participated in house teams. The weather held out until shortly before lunch time when we gave into the rain and retreated indoors after a few of the race events. Once inside, we quickly tallied the points from both sessions to discover this years Sports Day Salver winners. Ferguson were the successful champions this year closely followed by Stuart and Liddell.

P1/2 and P6/7 mini topic week

P1/2 and some of P6/7 have been busy this week doing lots of collaborative activities based around the story book Whatever Next by Jill Murphy.

P6/7 quickly set to the task of writing a sequel to the original story using a similar format and characters. We have been preparing for our class assembly next week which Abby, Kian, Jowita, Wiktoria and Chloe will help us to present.

We created a healthy picnic for teddy and owl. – Maris

We changed the words of Teddy Bears picnic and made it about Owl and Baby Bear. – Leah

We played a game called “Whatever Next” which was like What’s the time Mr Wolf. – Lewis

We are looking forward to sharing all our learning with you on Wednesday at our Assembly.

Maths learning outside

We decided to take advantage of the sunshine while it’s still here – despite a little gust of wind every now and then and go outside and succeed together in our maths. We demonstrated our understanding of equivalent fractions with sticks and consolidated our multiplication facts using leaves as inspiration for the calculations. We also explored some problem solving activities involving volume and shape. We all worked well together to try and meet each of the challenges.

P6 at Linlithgow Cross Country

We attended a cross country event with other P6 Pupils from schools across West Lothian. We ran completed a course around Linlithgow Peel and there were trophies awarded for first, second and third place for both boys and girls. The weather was nice and we had lots of fun taking part.

P6/7 Learning about Food Labelling

Today we were discussing and researching the information contained on food labels. We discovered that certain information must be included by law and how the laws about this have changed. We will now go on to learn more about how we as consumers can use this information to help us make informed decisions about what we eat. We also measured out,as a group, what we thought was a recommended portion size of muesli….. we were quite surprised by what constituted a recommended portion compared to what we had served ourselves. #portioncontrol
