On the 5th July Westfield held the annual Sports day, Fete and Arts Exhibition. The day consisted of all the students (and staff) taking part in a wide range of activities around the school.
Primary classes were on the field working around activity stations lead by Westfield’s own sports leaders. Stations included, fancy dress, egg and spoon, sack race, obstacle, target throwing and the sprints. After each group had done two activities they got a well deserved drinks break and all of the pupil gained stickers on the position they came and also for taking part.
Whilst the primary classes were on the field doing their activities the secondary classes were doing different activities around the school such as, commando challenge, slalom running, sprint rowing, and many more. The pupils in secondary were competing within their own tutor group during these stations.
After both Primary and secondary had finished their activities the whole school took to the field for a whole school picnic and also a lovely fete that was put on by our PAP’s department.
After the picnic pupils from the secondary department went to there designated colour teams and then the Westfield Rounder’s competition got under way. This was a very popular event within the school as pupils (and staff) took part trying there best to score Rounder’s for their colour teams. There were some great displays of sportsmanship and enjoyment which resulted in the Blue team winning overall.
Throughout the day parents also had the chance to look around Westfield’s end of year Arts exhibition. The aim of the exhibition is that every child has a piece of work displayed that their family and friends can come to see. The display takes place in the new Drama Studio showing the work off to it’s full potential. The work ranged from Jellyfish made by the very youngest pupils to GCSE coursework through to silver smithing by the 6th form students. All of the work looked fantastic and judging by the comments left in the visitors book there were some very happy and proud parents and students.
