The last month has been a very busy and exciting time in the world of Westgate sport.

On 16th June our Quick Cricket team participated in the annual Dartford Festival. It was an excellent day’s cricket full of close finishes and terrific play.

The Westgate team were simply outstanding and finished second in their group to a powerful Wentworth side. They eventually finished fourth overall after losing a thrilling game against Oakfield.

The whole team performed and behaved marvellously, but three highlights were the captaincy of Farhan, an amazing catch by Kane and an extremely promising display of batting and bowling by Harry.

wgsport3During June all children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 took part in a Scoote Run Challenge during PE lessons. This was our last event in the Dartford Games Celebration.

Children scooted and then ran around the court with their combined times counting. The seven best performers received a medal in a sharing assembly . They were Reuben and Hallie in Year 1, Ayo in Year 2, Kye in Year 3, Lewy in Year 4, Frankie in Year 5 and Xander in Year 6.

Our Pre-School Gymnastics has now finished. It was a huge success and we expect it will continue again next year.

Finally on 9th July Westgate participated in the District Athletics Festival at Central Park. Although there was no individual glory, all our runners, throwers and jumpers had the great experience of running on the Dartford Harriers Track and meeting the Mayor of Dartford. Another fine example of Westgate pupils doing the school proud.
