To mark the 50th anniversary of West Park Primary School being located in Devon Road, pupils in Years 5 and 6 are participating in an exciting project exploring the history of the school. This is an ongoing project during the Autumn Term due to finish around Christmas with a big production to mark the celebration of 50 Years of West Park Primary School.
On Wednesday the 20th September, Year 5 skilfully interviewed a wide range of visitors, connected with the school's history in different ways: former pupils; members of staff including the former Headteacher Gerry Mills and Deputy Headteacher Sue Bagguley. This is Mike Edwards - the reason the whole project came to be. Mike was one of the first pupils at West Park School in 1967.

In Autumn 2016, the whole school did a reading project based on the book Flotsam by David Wiesner. Year 2 used the book for inspiration to perform an assembly enjoyed by parents and families.
Year 3 Weather Project
In Summer 2017, children in Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed teaching Amy and the alien all about weather. Children used writing as well as movement and dance to show Amy all the different weather types on earth.
