The Year 5 visit to the Milton Keynes Museum

The Year 5s have been studying the Victorians and today we visited the Milton Keynes Museum to experience what life was like for them.
The children experienced how different school life was in Victorian times and how strict the rules were.
They could all appreciate how much better school life was today - in particular, no canes.
They looked at the lives of both rich and poor families, which gave them a better understanding of what life was really like in the late nineteenth century.

Year 3 Trip to Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

During our trip to the Museum of Natrual History, the children were able to consolidate their knowledge of Dinosaurs and Fossils. All the children had a wonderful day discovering and exploring many 'touchable' exhibits, intriguing drawers to open and 'feely boxes' to explore.
We all had a very enjoyable day.

Webber Students Broaden their French skills at the BFI in London

Webber Students at British Film Institute

Review from Mr Stephen Johnson, Wednesday 24th May 2017
Today, we ventured out in the glorious sunshine with students from Years 5 & 6 to The British Film Institute in London.
The educational study day consisted of several French-language film screenings, with shorts in the morning and a full-length animated movie in the afternoon.
Everyone had a great time both watching the films and following up with relevant activities. Students gained a wealth of cultural and linguistic knowledge from the experience.
We even had two of our students up on the stage performing some role-plays for the entire audience.
The event was a big success, and certainly helped to increase the students' cultural awareness of the Francophone world through the medium of cinema.

Webber Sweeps Three Golds in ISA Athletic Championships

Review by Mrs K Willis, Head of P.E
On Friday 12th May, twenty eight Webber students traveled to Bedford International Athletic Stadium to compete in the London North ISA Athletic Championships.

Fortunately, the forecast rain and thunder storms held off as our students shone with their performances  Our top performers; Hugo Jackson, won gold in the 800m and placed second in the high jump, Jaydie Durnford and Irene Coronado Perez, both won gold in the 70m hurdles and 75m hurdles, respectively. In addition to our gold medallists, the following students placed third in their events; Jude Gore, Samantha Gomez, Elliot Balchin-Love and Aaliya Chaudhry. 
Congratulations on a fantastic achievement by all students, they really did The Webber Independent School proud, particularly those students who had never competed in an athletics event before.

 We will be back next year aiming for more golds!

Webber Girls Smashing Rounders Performance

Review by Mrs Katie Willis, Thursday 11th May 2017

The sun was shining for our Year 9 rounders tournament that took place on Thursday evening at Ousedale School. Despite being one player short, the Webber team showcased some brilliant fielding and batting skills throughout the tournament. A special mention must go to Lisa Curtin who scored a rounder on almost every bat she had, with one of her hits making it all the way to the neighbouring rounders pitch! This certainly intimidated all of our opposition and we came away winning three out of the four games we played. Well done to Lisa, Lily, Alison, Irene, Gauri, Steph, Nerea and Steph Liney, who stepped up at the last minute to help us out.
