Reception have been learning all about 3D shapes and have enjoyed a '3D Shape Museum' in the classroom: where they brought in objects from home that were of different 3D shapes. After exploring lots of fun 3D shape-related activities over a couple of weeks, they ended their learning by making delicious 3D shape ice creams! They featured a cone, a sphere, a cylinder and a cuboid. Needless to say, the Reception children have loved learning about 3D shapes!

The pupils and staff of West Lodge certainly embraced the themes of Castles and Time Travel for World Book Day. Whilst the children enjoyed the regular activities of DEAR (drop everything and read), buddy reading between EYFS, KS1 and KS2 classes there was the extra challenge for the children to work out mystery dates in history as well as draw and name different parts of a castle. The work produced throughout the school ranged from time travel to adventures in enchanted castles, all of which demonstrated the enthusiasm that the children felt for the themes and their love both of books and creative writing.

On Wednesday the 6th March, the Year 5/6 mixed tag rugby team went to a tournament hosted by Beths. As we arrived, we saw a lot of schools, which meant a lot of matches. In our group, we played Fosters and Old Bexley. Altogether we won 2 matches, lost 1 and drew 1 in our group, which meant we did not go through. After, we played 2 friendly matches against Burnt Oak and Old Bexley. We drew against Old Bexley and won against Burnt Oak. Unfortunately, it did not count to the overall scores but most importantly we had fun and worked as a team. Thank you to Mr McCabe and Mrs Calland for taking us and being a great support.
