Another action-filled week at Westbourne. Students from across the age ranges have once more delighted us with their level of interaction and high quality of work whilst engaging with Westbourne Online.
A meaningful and inspiring poem, IF, by Rudyard Kipling has been a theme throughout these times for Westbourne, echoed in Dr Griffiths first letter at the start of Westbourne Online.
Whilst acknowledging that the tone is of a distant age, the sentiment of the poem remains and we extend a huge thank you to the students who helped to bring the words to life this week.
Last week saw a few of our four-legged friends join the end of our lessons, much to the delight of classmates, this week they have inspired our young photographers!
Mr Tucker set the challenge of Pet Portraits for Photography Club and our keen Club members did not disappoint with their excellent work.
It may be a while before we get to play a team game, however that has not stopped our football skills club practising their ball skills.
A preview of just some of the skills we hope to see in action in the coming seasons.
Thank you to Tomos and Sahib for featuring in the below trailer!
Artists across Year 8 and Year 9 have delighted us this week with their work.
In Year 9 we saw students conduct a visual analysis on Pablo Picasso’s painting ‘Guernica’. analysing the painting in both written and drawn form, whilst in Year 8 work was based on the artist Friedrich Hundertwasser.
We have seen some impressive challenges from across the student community over the past few weeks and thanks go out to all students who have set them.
From bouncing tennis balls on the side of racquets, throwing balls whilst doing the splits to a gymnastic handstand, many have involved a great deal of energy. This week our challenge comes from Safia in IB1 who sets us a challenge with an environmental theme.
