Southend East Essex Design Competition

West Leigh has, once again, entered into the South East Essex Design Competition which showcases the fantastic art and technology work from across a number of schools in the county. It is a superb opportunity to share ideas with others and show other schools our best achievements in these two subjects. On Monday 27th March, Mr Loveridge was joined by seven children representatives from across the school at Deanes Academy for the awards ceremony. Tensions were high as bronze awards were announced and West Leigh was not included in the list. Year 3 were then announced to have won a silver award for their Greek Temple Art and the remaining three year groups continued to wait in anticipation b

Sports Hall Athletics

On Wednesday 14th March, the year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics squad travelled to Garons Tennis and Leisure Centre to compete in the Essex Finals. The competition consisting of 6 track events and 6 field events, each athlete is only allowed to compete in a maximum of 2 track and 2 field events. With the top 14 schools from Essex competing the squad knew it was going to be a tough event. With each track event taking place at the same time as the field events, some of the children were getting back from one event and going straight into their next event. Some of the year 6 children even used the time they were waiting for their events to squeeze in some SATs revision. All the athletes pe

‘Memphis’ at Westcliff High School for Girls

On Monday 12th March, Year 6 attended a preview performance of Westcliff High School for Girls’ production of the musical ‘Memphis’. With a story based around the segregation of people due to the colour of their skin in America in the mid-twentieth century, the show certainly was thought-provoking for our pupils. The year group certainly enjoyed the production based on their reactions and their behaviour from the moment they left West Leigh to the moment they returned was a credit to our school. It was also lovely to see past pupils in the role of prefects at WHSG as well as on stage including a fantastic performance from the leading man. Perhaps we will see one of our current Year 6 pupils

Yr5/6 Boys football V Earls Hal

On Thursday 8th March, Mr Nash and Miss Fletcher travelled to Earls Hall Primary School with the boys’ football team to play their penultimate league game of the season. The boys had to work hard to push forward and find space. Both teams had a number of very close shots at goal. In the first half West Leigh managed to find a gap to put the ball in the back of the net. With the half time whistle blown the score was, West Leigh 1-0 Earls Hall. In the second half both teams put in a fantastic performance, with some great tackles and defensive play. Yet again both sides had some close shots with the keepers making some great saves. West Leigh managed to find some space to play the ball fo

Year 6 Dogs Trust workshop

Year 6 recently enjoyed participating in an interactive workshop led by Maria from Dogs Trust. During the session, they considered the evolution of dogs by learning about the domestication of wolves.

Eco team challenge day

On 8th February 2018 the children enjoyed an exciting morning where they came together in their house teams to design and create a new eco mascot for the school. The idea was put together by our eco warriors during their meetings. The aim of the project was to raise the profile of eco across the school and it certainly did raise awareness as each team discussed issues such as pollution, litter and wasting water. The teams were mixed across the school which allowed children of all ages to work together and many made new friendships. We have been blown away by the creativity and skill of our children and those of us lucky enough to be able to wander around the school during the morning to visi
