Hamstel football match

On Tuesday 7th February, Mr Hatton and Mr Nash travelled to Hamstel Junior School with the boys' football team to play their next league game of the season and a friendly. From the beginning of both games West Leigh took control of the match with the pressure creating lots of chances. West Leigh continued to dominate the game. The second half continued in the same way, with West Leigh creating all the chances and a few shots which were cleared off the line. The final score of the friendly was 4-0 and the league game 7-1. The performance was brilliant and, should they continue to play that way, the boys' team will certainly win many games this year. #Wholeschool #Year5 #Year6

National Primary Maths Challenge Final

On Wednesday 1st February, several Year 6 pupils, having qualified from the November round, had the opportunity to take part in the National Primary Maths Challenge Final. As a competition, it involves the pupils applying their vast mathematical knowledge in highly complex problems. As usual, the final was incredibly difficult yet the pupils seemed positive about the experience. Their efforts have since been sent off to the Mathematics Association for marking and the results will be available later in the year. Irrespective of how they score, the school is very proud of their achievements in this prestigious competition. #year3 #Year5 #wholeschool #Year4 #Year6

Belfairs Nature Reserve assembly

On Friday 3rd February, the whole school were visited by Beck Fitzpatrick from Belfairs Nature Reserve. She delivered a very interesting assembly that informed children about the work of the Essex Wildlife Trust. She told the children all about how they could help local wildlife in their own gardens – for example growing flowers or piling logs for bugs to live in. The children also found out about lots of the exciting events that take place at the Belfairs Nature Reserve in the school holidays. #year3 #Year4 #Year5 #wholeschool #Year6

CEOP workshops

Over the last two weeks, children in Years 5 and 6 have taken part in CEOP workshops to advise them how to be safe online. A representative from CEOP has delivered a one hour session to each class in upper school with a focus on apps and social media and how these can be used safely. Children learned about the importance of covering or disabling their webcam, as well as ensuring that their privacy settings are activated when using various apps. It was emphasised that Facebook should only be used once children are 13. We were surprised that many children had public YouTube accounts and the children considered why this might be needed at their age. #Year5 #Wholeschool #Year6

Netball league game

On Tuesday 9 year 6 girls travelled to OLOL for the netball league games. It was cold and raining, first game against Chalkwell was 10 - 10. Very high scoring and very high standard. We then played OLOL and drew again 1-1 this time. Finally we played st michaels and lost 3-1, although we lost the final game it was very close and the girls still enjoyed the experience and look forward to the tournaments coming up. #Year6 #wholeschool

Hate Crime Assembly

As part of our work towards the Equality and Diversity mark for our school, upper school were visited by Neil Monk from Hate Crime Victim Support. He spoke to the children about the reasons why different groups of people were targeted for hate crimes and the effect that these have on the victims. The children also considered how we can help those who may be being targeted for bullying or hate crime. Neil was extremely impressed with the thoughtful responses given by our pupils and how beautifully they sat and listened throughout the assembly. This work will now be followed up in class. #Year5 #wholeschool #Year6
