Mr Harrison's blog

As we head into half-term, it is good to reflect on the events of the calendar year so far – each New Year offers such hope and this term has witnessed those aspirations being translated into reality. The children have again responded superbly to the challenges they face, most of all, perhaps, Year 6 who have been earnest, mature and steadfast in their approach to the 11+ exams – a most stressful time for all. The results of their Entrance Exams are now filtering through and I am delighted to say that 8 scholarship offers have so far been made which include music for the first time, along with art and academic awards.

A volcanic eruption in Kindergarten!
This week the Kindergarten children have been finding out about volcanoes. After conducting research through the internet and books, the children learnt all about making their own volcanoes. They used water bottles, newspaper and tissue paper to construct two models. 
Year 3 are monsters!
For Design and Technology this half term Year 3 have been investigating the use of pneumatic systems. The children were given a specification to design a monster which moves through the use of a pneumatic system and so spent weeks carefully planning and sourcing appropriate materials.
Year 6 visit Henley Fort

"Freedom is in peril: defend it with all your might”

Year 6 brought a very busy and intense half-term to an end with a dynamic and thought-provoking trip to Henley Fort in Surrey. The aim was to learn more about how England prepared its defences during World War II, and to think about how worrying the threat of invasion must have been for the civilians. 

Hockey report

WGS are currently in their busiest ever term of sport at Weston Green: each and every child will represent the school in the many hockey fixtures throughout the term; the Year 3 children have already played in their first ever match with wooden sticks and gum shields; the results and performances have been very positive and are great reward for all the hard work the children put into their twice weekly games sessions.
  Gung Hoy Fat Choy!  Happy New Year Chinese style!  
  What a fantastic day the school had, celebrating Chinese New Year.  Across all year groups the curriculum was adapted to have a Chinese focus, from investigating the Mystery of the Stolen Dragon Mask in Maths, making Chinese Lanterns in Art, making spring rolls in Kindergarten Cookery and writing Gushi poetry in English as well as learning about the animals in the Chinese zodiac.  In Year 2, the children enjoyed two brilliant workshops by Mr Lee from "China People Promotions" which introduced them to some traditional Chinese stories and the wonderful art of calligraphy.
