  • Remembering ...

    Published on Friday 18th November 2016

    In the approach to Remembrance Day, Bourne Westfield once again launched their Poppy Day preparations.   Poppy sales are a popular feature for all children, irrespective of age, and our Year 6 house captains led on their distribution around the school.  Poppies are very symbolic of the respect and honour afforded to those who have served their country, irrespective of politics, and our preparations and assemblies provide an age-appropriate understanding of the history and symbology.

  • Harry Potter Studios

    Published on Friday 4th November 2016

    The latest inspiration event for the pupils in Year 6 had a somewhat magical quality!  The school had arranged an ambitious trip to the Warner Brothers Studios so children could experience the Harry Potter Tour.  The trip built on the Hogwarts Day enjoyed a few weeks before when all Year 6 children spent a day tutored by teachers from Hogwarts under the watchful eye of Professor Dumbledore himself.  The studio tour generated huge excitement amongst the Year 6s from the moment they were told in advance of it;  a lengthy coach trip was little price to pay for what proved the highlight of the year so far!  For the children, the studio tour itself blended the art of the filmmaker in capturing the spectacle, mood and atmosphere of what must be one of the most popular fantasy genre stories for many with the means to capture and truly inspire the imagination.   All children were in awe to see and touch the very sets, props and costumes that previously they had enjoyed seeing in the Harry Potter film series.  Quite literally, ‘Awesome!’ was the very word that many used throughout the tour!
