Please see below for some examples of work and enrichment at Westmeads.

Year 2 learnt about Romans and wanted to find out if Rome was built in a day. They thought about what they already knew and what we wanted to find out throughout the term. Year 2 started the topic off with a ‘Roman Day’ and visited Canterbury Roman Museum as a 'Fantastic Finish'.

World War II 

As part of Year 2's WW2 topic, the children visited the local Whitstable museum to look at artefacts from WW2 as well participate in an evacuation re-enactment day. Parents and carers were invited into school to take part. Firstly, the children waved their grown ups goodbye before leaving to be evacuated. On their safe return they had a Victory party to celebrate the end of the war.
