New for 2021/22
September is not far away! For our pupils, new and existing, the first few weeks of term can be an exciting time. However, for some, it can also be a worrying and uncertain time. This page will hopefully remind pupils of all the lovely things they have to look forward to upon their return, as well as some exciting new additions for the 2021/22 academic year!
New exciting corridors are popping up around the school! These corridors promote key topics, themes and include relevent texts and resources.
In fact, Year 3 (during their Ancient Egypt topic) can decipher the golden hieroglyphics to uncover the hidden Westerings treasure!
Our new dinosaur corridor has a flying pterodactyl, an escaping raptor and a submerged Spinosaurus!
Mr Daniell has been busy this summer! All our classrooms now have the refreshed paint scheme, first seen in our new Y5/6 block in 2019. New chairs, tables and classroom furniture match the feature walls in each classroom. Our teachers have been in too, putting their magic finishing touches to their rooms.
Here, Violets and Bluebells classrooms can be seen sporting their new looks!
This month, we've taken delivery of three trolleys of iPads! We now have over 250 Chromebooks and iPads across the Academy - the most tech' we've ever had! Each teacher also has their own iPad and laptop, enabling them to capture learning 'in the moment' and update parents via the Class Dojo app.
We've also begun replacing the older of our class screens, replacing the 2017 Clevertouch displays for new multitouch 75" screens. Along with the new ELMO visualisers, this will enable teachers to display pupil work in glorious High Definition!
Our new school dog, Zola, joins us in September! She'll be with us each day, and cannot wait to meet the children!
Our Wildlife Walk is nearing completion, and our pupils will be able to start visiting the new nature reserve in September!
...and don't forget, our Wild Westerings Adventure Golf will be open to all pupils from September, and our new office area can be visited by parents, now that the Covid restrictions are lifting!
