The Active Wandsworth Awards recognises the commitment and achievement of the many people involved in sport and physical activity within Wandsworth. The awards reward talented local sports performers, coaches, volunteers, schools, organisations and clubs for their exceptional achievements in 2018. We are very excited to have been shortlisted for Active School of the Year! The winner is being announced on Friday 22nd February at a ceremony at Wandsworth Town Hall.
We have relaunched our House Points system with the children. Every week on Friday it will be announced in assembly which house has the most points for that week. The house that has won the most weeks for the year will have a group celebration.
We have also launched Golden Time on a Friday afternoon to reward excellent behaviour throughout the week which links to our behaviour policy. We are encouraging the children to reflect on their behaviour and engage in their learning by making positive behaviour choices with the prospect of Golden Time being the reward for this. Each class has designed their own Ready to Learn posters which record good behaviour during the week for every pupil. We think they came up with some fantastic ideas!
We have also introduced a special West Hill postcard to reward pupils for effort, hard work, being good role models and great behaviour. They will be sent by post from the class teacher during the year.
If your child has school lunches, please see below information about how payments should be made.
PAYING IN ADVANCE FOR SCHOOL LUNCHES - your child’s lunch account must be in credit for your child to have a lunch in school. The cost of a school lunch is £2.15. The weekly cost for lunches is £10.75. Therefore, your child’s lunch account must be £10.75 in credit on a Monday. If it is not in credit, your child cannot have a lunch, and should bring a packed lunch to school instead.
We welcomed Adrian from Bigfoot Arts Company to West Hill this month to run a fantastic workshop with Key Stage 2 pupils about Shakespeare. Here are our Year 4 pupils acting out the witches scene from Macbeth in their own style. His enthusiasm was infectious and really inspired the children to be excited about Shakespeare.
