Westgate Primary School

Friday Letter

Friday 6th March 2020

 

World Book Week

We wanted to start by saying a big thank you to all families for all the efforts that went into our Book Week. The children have really enjoyed it and looked wonderful on both dress up days. It was great to see so many parents attend our drop and read sessions at the end of the day and also the enthusiasm for reading and filling up those book marks! There was so much reading going on across the school and Year 5 were the group that read the most throughout the week – well done!

During this week we ran the raffle for February and the following winners were;

 

Reception – Zuzanna Orlik, Lola Moore & Gabrielle O’Hara

Sporting News

A huge well done to the two Year 5 and 6 Korfball teams who represented Westgate tonight. It was the biggest competition so far with 18 teams entering. This is a true testament to the hard work Lancaster Community Sports Hub have put in to developing the sport in the area and we are so grateful for our partnership with Andrew Barnes (3 years and counting!)
The standard was incredibly high but our two teams performed brilliantly. Westgate Yellow came 3rd in their group, with some help from Coach Dixon but only the top 2 progressed to the next stage. Westgate Blue however, narrowly beat BLS in the group stages to win their group and end up in the semi-finals against Willow Lane. After drawing 2-2, the game went to some nerve wracking penalties. Even these couldn't determine a winner so next came 'sudden death'! Unfortunately it wasn't to be but after losing so cruelly, the first thing our Westgate team did was congratulate Willow Lane. Amazing sportsmanship ❤ The team went on to play one last game which they won, therefore coming 3rd overall.


Well done to ALL the children involved and to the parents/carers for their support!

 

Film Nights

Thank you to all the Reception and Key Stage One children who came to the film nights this week. They were well attended and they children all had a lovely time.

On Tuesday 10th March it’s the turn of Years 3, 4, 5 & 6. Please ensure your child brings £2 in a named envelope on the day of the event. Any children who do not bring the money will not be able to stay for the event. The class teachers will take the children who are staying straight to the hall after school. Years 3 and 4 can then be collected at 5.30pm from the main office and Years 5 and 6 from the side door just outside the small hall.

 KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE !!!

 

Dear Parents,

  We want to avoid any accidents on the school site at any time of the day. Consequently we will make sure the pedestrian gates are both open as early as possible to reduce the numbers walking through the Children’s Centre car park.

 We would be very grateful for your assistance in keeping the school site safe by considering the following actions:

 

  • Park outside on the road and walk in through one of the pedestrian gates
  • Do not use the Children’s Centre car park as a short cut to the Children’s Centre main entrance – walk up to the school entrance and turn right along the perimeter of the car park
  • Do not park in the bay reserved for disabled parking
  • During the dark mornings wear something light or reflective
  • Breakfast Club parents park on the school car park to reduce traffic on the Children’s Centre car park (which is much smaller)
  • Drive very slowly on the school site even though you may be pushed for time – be very aware there could be small children around

 Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our children, and their parents, safe and sound.

 

 

Regards

K. Wright (Headteacher)
