An amazing showcase of work at Bourne Westfield Primary Academy
Children in years 1, 2 and 5 at Bourne Westfield Primary Academy had the opportunity to show parents and visitors what they have been learning so far this year at recent Learning Showcase assemblies.
The children displayed great courage when speaking in front of the visitors.
Year 1 pupils had the opportunity to be teachers for the day and ‘taught’ the visitors many different aspects of the curriculum.
Head of school Kate Atkinson said: “The children confidently explained how to programme Beebots, use functions machines and learn phonics. They were great ambassadors for the school; there are definitely some little teachers in the making!”
Year 2 children wowed their parents by learning their lines off by heart to share the experiences they have had.
Parents had the opportunity to listen to a variety of songs from each year group.
The children even got the parents joining in with the action for their times table song!
Class teacher, Sara Waldock said: “I was so proud of the children and it was lovely to see so many parents and relatives coming into school to share in what the children have been doing.”
Year 5 pupils were responsible for teaching their visitors through a series of activities across the three classrooms once they had completed a phenomenal performance of Mars from Holst’s Planets Suite.
All 90 children formed an orchestra of recorders, clarinet, violin, cornet, piano and drums.
Arts director Miss Beavis said, “The Year 5 teachers really wanted the children to perform together as it linked so well with their science work.
"With only two weeks to practice, I think the children have done an outstanding job!”
