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

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.

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.

Webber Girls on a Winning Streak

Match review by Mrs Katie Willis, Tuesday 9th May 2017

On Tuesday evening Webber hosted St. Paul's for our second rounders match of the summer term. The Year 7/8 team certainly didn't disappoint. They displayed some superb fielding, managing to keep St. Paul's from scoring more than one rounder in the first innings. This put us at a huge advantage and after some fantastic hits, we were well ahead after the first innings. The girls performance was solid throughout both innings, and it was a well deserved win. Final score 24-4. Well done to Jaydie, Samantha, Sophie, Jaanvi, Aaliya, Elizabeth, Lisa, Lily and Alison.
