The Rights Respecting Committee were learning about UNICEF’s Rights of the Child today. They had to complete a Focus Group questionnaire but also had time to colour pictures to go on our wall display. Look out for updated display later in the week.
This year the children visited East Links Farm in Dunbar and enjoyed a fun- filled day. The sun shone and so did the children. An enjoyable day was had by all…
On Wednesday 25.06.14 Westfield Primary went to East Link Park and had lots of fun.
There were lots of activities which everybody enjoyed – the go carts, the fortress and seeing the animals. We also enjoyed feeding the animals.
We all went on a steam train and saw all the animals in the field. After the train journey, we all went for lunch.
After lunch we went on the crazy bikes and then we went for Ice lollies and then used the park and the go karts.
We all enjoyed it and it was lots of fun!

Pupils from P6 and 7 participated in the Annual Cluster Cross Country at Linlithgow Peel. They were supported by their P5 peers and a great day was had by all. Mrs Agini and the rest of Westfield Primary are proud of their efforts and demonstration of endurance and stamina . Well Done P6/7 you are always winners in our eyes!!!!
Members of the Pupil Council worked very hard to organise our recent successful Sports Day with Mrs Browne. We were very lucky and the weather held out for a fantastic event. Lots of parents came along to support and unknowingly participate in the events.
Pupils competed against their class mates in various races in the morning and then worked collectively in their new school houses to win a house relay.
All points awarded were tallied for each house and scores mounted as the day progressed. In the afternoon there was much fun when children moved around a potted sports circuit and collected loads of points for their houses. The final event saw tug of war pull between infant classes in house teams and then more of the same for the Upper classes.
Pupils as always demonstrated stamina, endurance and fantastic sportsmanship. The final totals were then calculated and the new Westfield Sports Day Shield was awarded to …………. LIDDELL!!!!
Well done to all Liddell House members and all pupils for making the day a real success!!
Special thanks also to all the parents who participated in the parents

As part of our Health and Wellbeing fortnight, our P7 Health Champions organised for the Smoothie bike to visit our school. Shona from Together for Health came along and worked with Reece and Keegan with each class to learn how to make healthy smoothies and blend them using the Smoothie Bike. Everyone enjoyed the process and learned lots of interesting information about which colour of fruits help which part of our body….. and the smoothies tasted great too!!!
As part of our cluster Healthywealth games and in the build up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, pupils at Westfield have bee working together to learn the Big Dance which is part of the Commonwealth Legacy. All pupils worked extremely hard to learn the steps and practiced regularly to achieve a fantastic result.
The whole school gathered in the school hall on Friday 16th May 2014 to perform the BIG Dance in Westfield, while people all over the world performed their versions simultaneously.
We hope you enjoy watching our performance. (click on the text below picture)
