First News Edition 728 and Activities

Date: 31st May 2020 @ 9:32pm

Hello Everyone,

We hope that you have had a fantastic half term with plenty of rest and sunshine to refuel your batteries ahead of the final half term.

This week's First News Newspaper is jam packed with information,intriguing up to date news stories, competitions and enjoyable fun activities. Making use of the First News resources makes you a real part of the news community as you will learn about current events and be able to engage in discussion about current topics with people at home and your teachers too using your SeeSaw personal account.

As always, with our younger children we recommend  looking through the pictures and having a brief discussion about the visual clues, recognising and valuing children’s skills in reading visual texts. Pictures offer equality of access to texts for all children, and provide an effective medium for promoting discussion and reflection.

Happy news reading, remember there are lots of additional activities in File Manager below should you wish to complete some news related tasks.

Stay safe, keep happy

What's Being Said?

"I never thought that Westwood was so large inside! From the road, it seems so small. What a wonderful use of space. The school has changed so much over the years!" - recent visitor to school
