Hockey and Football Tournament at Benedict House – Years 3-6

On the 19th October West Lodge went to Benedict House for a Hockey and Football Tournament.

Years 3 and 4 started the tournament off with lots of Hockey matches. The children have only just started learning Hockey and they all worked very hard. The children worked well as a team and enjoyed every minute of it. Isabel in particular made some fantastic saves in goal!

Year 5 and 6 then finished the day with our football matches. We were all excited and ready to play. We won most of our matches with myself, Jack, Jascha, Isaac and Louie scoring some great goals. Everyone else played brilliantly in defence and getting assists. Benedict House played really well today and scored a particularly great goal.

Overall, we had great fun and can’t wait to play them again!

West Lodge Vs Royal Russell Football Match Yr 5 and 6

On the 13th October 2016, my teammates and I went up to Sidcup Rugby Club to play a football match against Royal Russell.

In the first half, I scored the opening goal but then Royal Russell quickly brought it back to 1-1. It was quite an evenly matched half but our defence were excellent with Ceejay, Ionut, Isaac, Stacey, Joseph and Jay all stopping lots of the other teams attempts. Ben was also excellent in goal for us, and we finished the first half 2-1 up.

The second half was a little more one sided in favour of Royal Russell and they managed to score 2 quick goals from the kick off. Then we scored another 2 with Ceejay scoring an amazing volley and I got a hat trick. In the dying moments of the game disaster struck and they scored so we finished 4-4.

I think this was a very fair match with everyone from West Lodge trying their best.

Bromley High Cross Country Run

On the 11th October 2016 some children went to Bromley High School for Girls and went cross country running. Year 4 girls only had to run once round the field whilst the Year 5 and 6 girls had to run twice round the field. Overall we all enjoyed ourselves and everyone did very well, I must admit I was very tired after and I went to sleep very quickly that night!

Police Dogs Visit 16/09/16

On Friday 16.09.16, PC Jon Hilliger visited West Lodge with his dog Suki. He took our assembly and talked to us about how police dogs are used and told us some interesting facts about them and how they are trained.

After his presentation, we met Suki in smaller groups and got to watch her at work, finding a hidden torch. She would do anything for her yellow rubber ring! We had time to ask PC Hilliger some questions about his job and Suki before being allowed to stroke her.

 

The children really enjoyed meeting PC Hilliger and Suki and learned a lot about how police dogs are trained and used.

 

Year 2 visit to the Florence Nightingale Museum, 29/09/16

On Thursday 29th September, Year 2 went to the Florence Nightingale Museum in London. We went by train and had lunch in St Thomas' hosiptal before our workshop. We were greeted by Miss Nightingale and talked to about her young life and her experiences as a nurse. We took part in different activities to compare nurses in the past to present day nurses, look at historical artefacts and consider what they may have been used for and also given time to explore the museum and sketch things that interested us.

We got to act out parts of Florence's life and some of us even dressed up as a nurse / soldier from the Crimean War / Scutari Hospital.

The trip was good fun as well as helpful to our understanding of our History topic this half term.
