This year the Pupil Council worked hard to arrange and set up activities for the School pupils to take part in for Children in Need. This years theme was Superheroes and pupils could dress down/ up as a Superhero on Friday 14th November. Donations of baking were sold at a homebaking stall and pupils could decorate a Pudsey biscuit or balloon for a donation. There was Pudsey merchandise available to buy and any spare change could be used on the Cover Pudsey in Copper stall.
Pupils were invited to guess where Pudsey went on Holiday to win a Pudsey Bear. Well done to Andrew Sharp from the Morning nursery who guessed correctly to discover Pudsey had been to visit Paddington’s home in deepest Peru. The guess the weight of the Pudsey cake was won by Brodie and Meah Burns little sister Ciara – the correct weight was 1kg 253g. Christopher Miller in P7 was our star coin slider and managed to get his 20p closest to the jar of Sweets to secure the prize.
Congratulations to all our Prize winners and the winning Design a Superhero was taken by Cyrus Knox P3, closely followed by Donnie Tod P5. Our Pudsey colouring competition winners were Sophie Lee Davis, Amber Khan and Chloe Seagust.
A great morning was had by all and even the teachers got in the spirit and participated in a Soak the teacher event. Mrs Agini, Mrs Browne and Mrs Dare all took a slot on the chair and the pupils paid to throw a soaked sponge at them. Some were pretty accurate.
The nursery hosted a breakfast event on the Friday morning and a Scone and tea event on Thursday 13th which added to the fundraising total.
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
