School Council visit Bexley Food Bank

On Monday 2nd October, the West Lodge School Council visited Bexley Food Bank to give the food donations from our school harvest. We had so much food as everyone was very generous. Tomatoes, beans, cereals and lots of other tinned foods. We were split into two groups. Group 1 had to stik different coloured stickers on the food depending on their expiry date. Meanwhile, Group 2 put the stickered food into different boxes. We enjoyed our time at the Food Bank and it felt good to know that we were helping other people less fortunate than ourselves.

U11 Friendly Netball v Colfes 29/09/17

On Friday 29th September, Colfes came to West Lodge to play a friendly Netball match. 

With thanks to some parent helpers, we got the court moreorless puddle free and were able to play our match! 

West Lodge were missing their usual GA due to a broken finger but rose to the challenge; playing out of their usual positions and rethinking their passing and court positioning.

After 4 quarters, the final score was 9-1 to West Lodge and the team were rightly very proud of themselves. 

Thank you as always to Mrs Backley for her superb coaching and to the parents who came to support.

Next U11 Fixture: Friday 13th October - Tournament at St Christophers. 

Digestive System T Shirt

Year 4 had great fun completing their digestive system t-shirts. First, we drew an outline of the digestive system onto a template. We used our knowledge from previous lessons to help us draw. We had to make sure we positioned each part accurately, so we could then trace the outline onto our t-shirts. We enjoyed painting and using collage to decorate our digestive systems!

Football Match - Year 5 and 6

IMG 1224On 20th September Year 5 and 6 went to play a match against St Olaves up at Sidcup Rugby Club. We were fired up when we arrived and we were very excited for the game ahead of us. When it was time to play the whistle began the match.

St Olaves played very well and were 3-0 up by half time. Our defence worked very hard to stop St Olaves from scoring anymore. In the second half West Lodge played well, having some good shots on target and some good passes between the team.

The match finished with St Olaves winning 3-0. I think our team played brilliantly, particularly in the second half, and we gave it our all.
