Welcome to West Meadows Primary School and thank you for visiting our website. We hope that by browsing our site, you will get a picture of our vision, our aims and the values we uphold.
At West Meadows Primary School we strive to create a secure and happy environment which inspires high aspiration, success in all areas and creates memorable experiences. The happiness and well-being of all of our children is at the centre of everything we do. Through hard work and respecting ourselves and others, we develop and strengthen our wonderful, supportive West Meadows family.
We aim to master key skills enabling children at West Meadows to become independent, creative, considerate to others and to maximise all talents and abilities.
Our goal is for our children to leave us with the skills required to be successful in the 21st Century: problem solving, critical and creative thinking and successful team work.
We strive for excellence by working hard together to provide the very best education for our children in an environment which nurtures and cares for every individual – ensuring they will aspire ‘to be the best they can be.’
Our school’s life is underpinned by our inclusive motto,
‘Aim High, Succeed, Be Happy.’
We are very proud of our #WonderfulCommunity; if you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
With kind regards,
Mr. Daniel Wood
Year 2 have been looking at structures and properties of 3D shapes. They discussed the 2D shapes that can be seen in 3D structures. The children created depth to the shapes and discussed the properties (edges, faces & vertices) of the new shapes. Rather excitingly, the structures were made from marshmallows and cocktail sticks. A fantastic Maths session, well done everyone.
During our time learning about Vikings, the children created timelines, sketched and painted dragons, created shields, solved Viking math problems and made jewellery to showcase to parents. They did this by turning the classroom into a Viking restaurant and planned and cooked a three-course meal, served by themselves for their loved ones. They entertained their families with Viking facts, battle tactics and dance.
Our EYFS 1 Children made some delicious Pizza! They talked about healthy foods, used the knives to improve chopping skills and tasted a range of vegetables (some of which were new!) They particularly enjoyed the tasting at home and we know that other family members were jealous of the treat! Well done to the families who extended this learning at home – thank you.
We said Goodbye to the lovely Miss Evans in Special Assembly. Miss Evans has been with us for a Year and worked primarily in our Year 3 Classes. She has done a fantastic job and we’ll miss her! To say thank you we presented her with some gifts. We hope she has a wonderful time at her new school in Sheffield who are lucky to have her (and finds a quick way to negotiate the journey.) Thanks again Miss Evans for all of your hard work from everyone in our #WonderfulCommunity.
Wow! Thank you to our amazing Year 5 Young Leaders. They led our #WonderfulCommunity in raising £150 for the Lily Grace Cunliffe Foundation, a charity close to our hearts at West Meadows. Many thanks to Mr. Beever for joining his family (our lovely Miss and Mrs. Beever) to receive the presentation on the charity’s behalf. A superb supportive community.
Our Headteacher’s Superstars this week represent Year 2 and Year 3. In Year 3 (Key Stage 2) this member of our award winning dancing team always works hard and produces amazing work in all subjects. She always tries her best and is a credit to our lovely school. In Year 2 this Superstar has shown tremendous improvement in all subjects and has really caught Miss Steele’s eye with her friendship and kindness qualities. Two amazing representatives of our school and richly deserving award winners.
What a Night! Our Musical & Dance Extravaganza was shared with a packed audience (thank you #WonderfulCommunity.) The children were just amazing! We wish to congratulate all of our performers and of course Mr. Ormondroyd, Mr. Mitchell & Miss Knox for their hard work in preparing a special evening. The standard was superb as our musicians were joined by both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Dancing Teams. The night finished with an encore of ‘Consider Yourself’ our award winning piece; the audience could certainly consider themselves lucky to witness such a special evening. Well done everyone!
Year 5 closed their Islam Work by enjoying some divine Asian Cuisine. The children have worked so hard that Mrs. Maree decided they deserved a tantalising treat. Well done Year 5 – some fabulous cross curricular, delicious work!
Our Super Barnsley Fan in Year 6 had an amazing evening at Villa Park. After thoroughly enjoying Barnsley’s 3-1 triumph his night was topped off with the gift of Adam Davies’ gloves! Adam Davies was called up to the Wales national football team squad for the World Cup Qualifying matches against Austria and Georgia. What an amazing gesture from an outstanding sportsman. Thank you, Adam!
