Westbourne goes to the polls!
Visiting artists in preparation for Junior School Art Exhibition
Sarah Richards' visit - the children were shown wonderful examples of Sarah's work, learning about how she uses landmarks and buildings in South Wales as her initial inspiration. The children discussed with Sarah how her art has a lot of rhythm, energy and movement through the use of geometric shapes and exaggerated elements.
Sheridan Ward's visit - the children were fascinated by Sheridan's beautiful paintings of flowers. They were amazed that Sheridan never uses a pencil to start her paintings. Although initially quite daunting for the children, they soon got very creative with their paint brushes, learning about how to use thick brush strokes and different tones to create eye catching images that capture the light and beauty of the flowers.
Julie Lyddon's visit - The children in Nursery were shown examples of Julie's fun and colourful work and learnt how she uses primary colours and simple shapes to create paintings full of energy.
We would like to thank all of the artists for visiting and for truly inspiring us all!

Tennis taster sessions
Year 1,2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 pupils visited Penarth Tennis Club to have a taster session with Tom from the Vale Tennis Academy. The pupils had great fun and should have brought home flyers with additional information on them. After school tennis lessons will be starting Wednesday 10th June, please let your child's form teacher know if your son or daughter is interested in going to these lessons.
Thank you to the Friends of Westbourne for their annual contribution which allows us to use the tennis facilities.

Joe Year 10
Joe Attanoos (year 10) has had a good start to 2015! He received a merit in his guitar grade 3 exam earlier this year as well as a distinction in his LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) exam- Acting Grade 5 solo. He still performs with The Stagecentre group and in July 2015 will be performing in Les Miserables at the Sherman Theatre.
He continues to go from strength to strength with his indoor climbing and is now at NICAS level 5 (the highest level) and is now able to climb and boulder without an instructor. Scary!
