27.2.19 Y6 football match against St. Olaves


On the 27th February, the Year 6 football team went to Sidcup Rugby Club to play St. Olaves. In the end, we won 8-3 but the best part was that everyone played as a team and if something went wrong, nobody moaned at eachother, which showed through in the game. All in all, we had a great time and we feel it is great preparation for Friday's tournament. Come on West Lodge!

On Tuesday 26th February, Year One went to Space!  Well not quite Space, but we certainly went on a journey around the planets at the Greenwich Royal Observatory and Planetarium!  We found out lots of interesting facts about the milky way and took part in a fantastic workshop learning about the tilt of the earth and how we get our seasons.  Due to the beautiful weather, we were also able to go and have a look at the whole of London from the top of Greenwich park and play in the sunshine!  It was a brilliant day out and the behaviour of the children was excellent, as always.

House Reading Competition 2019

The major inter-house event of the half-term was the House Reading Competition. It was fantastic that so many of the children prepared readings to audition to represent their houses and the teachers had the very difficult task of selecting, who would represent their houses. Selecting finalists is always tricky but with the increased range of events acrosss the year, we hope that as many children as possible will have the chance to perform for their house.

With seperate Key Stage 1 and 2 events this year, the younger children had the chance to participate and I have to say I was most impressed with the children in Reception to Year 2. Well done to you all and thank you to former West Lodge teacher, Mrs Standing for judging.

In the afternoon Mr Hankin and Mrs Davies, former Head of St Dunstan's and a governor at West Lodge, were equally impressed with the older children and particularly Year 6, who had to cope with an unseen Dickens passage as well. Following two very close competitions, the results were:

1st - St. Andrew

2nd - St. George

3rd - St. Patrick

4th - St. David

My thanks go to the judges and Mrs Slater for the musical interludes, but particularly Mrs Coleman for organising the event. Once again, well done to all who performed.

We all played really well as a team and we really enjoyed ourselves.
