Well done to the year 6 for performing the best songs from our week in Weymouth as well orating original poems and recreating the tenacity shown during the week when fighting their fears (mostly heights). Here are some of our favourite moments that were part of the slideshow.
We recieved a visit today from the Little Red Hen. She had left us the ingredients to make bread and asked if we could help her. We really enjoyed making it and I hope you’ve enjoyed tasting it at home.
Well done to all the year 6s who created an amazing bake-off event to help support Wiltshire Air Ambulance. With the help of Mr.Cooper and Mrs Griffin, they helped to raise an astonishing £144.13 from their patisserie prowess. Also thank you to parents and students of Westbury who helped support by buying every last crumb of confectionery on offer.
The Wiltshire service is a crucial service to the county and you can still donate at https://www.wiltshireairambulance.co.uk/donate/
Silbury and Wylye children have had an exciting start to their new classes. An amazing dinosaur egg has been found and this led to lots of wonderful speculation from the children about where it came from and how it got there. Children were eager to give their ideas – “A Pterodactyl dropped it”, “A dinosaur has lost it and will be really sad”, “I think its from a T-rex because it is the same colour as a T-rex – all spotty!”
As part of World Environmental Day all children in our school joined together in a big project to think about our use of plastic. Eco club started the day with an assembly which shared facts about the growing problem of using single use plastics. These plastics include plastic water and fizzy drink bottles, plastic straws, plastic cups and plastic bags. We found out that plastic easily gets washed out into the sea and has a dramatic impact on wildlife. In 2050 it is estimated that there will be more plastic bottles in the sea than fish. This is something that made many of the pupils sad. “If we have no fish, the sea will lose all of its colours.” We want to make a change.
The World Environmental Committee has asked everyone to reduce, reuse, recycle or refuse our use of plastic. We found how we can help by buying reusable cups and bottles, paper straws and reusable bags.
To help remind us of the amazing fish in the sea we made our own.
We love fish not plastic.
Key Stage 2 parents are invited in to see the exhibition on Monday 2nd July at 3:10pm.
Thank you to all staff , pupils and parents who made last Thursday’s sports day a memorable event. It was a superb occasion and the sun was certainly shining on us. In the morning, a competitive KS2 took to the field and in the end, Hampshire House took the spoils. In the afternoon, it was Wiltshire House’s turn and they were also the overall house winner of the day. A special mention has to go to Miss Richardson, who organised the special day so superbly and to the year 6 pupils who did a grand job supporting the younger ones in the afternoon.
The year 6s finished off their hard week (lots of SATs practise) with a trip to Bath University to explore STEM in all its glory. There was a huge exhibition in The Edge Arts Centre with stalls showcasing science in different ways. Showcasing things like VR experiences, creepy crawlies and hovercrafts made from leafblowers, children experienced some very interesting investigations from scientists and schools around the South West. One student was particuarly inspired by a PHD. student who was also a track runner and ballroom dancer!
