Year 6 Assembly December 2017

Our oldest stars provided a packed School Hall with a brilliant Class Assembly. They looked at all things healthy: our diet, exercise routines, safety and even managed a musical solo ditty to conclude the show! Thank you to all of our #WonderfulCommunity who were able to support us and well done to the staff for their hard work. However, the shining lights were undoubtedly the Year 6 children who shared several key messages in a sensitive and highly entertaining way. Well done everybody.

Condover 2017

A Wonderful Week saw our Year 6 children enjoy a fabulous time at Condover Hall in Shropshire. Condover Hall is a prestigious Elizabethan residential activity centre, hosting teambuilding and non-stop educational activity ideal for children. The Hall’s facilities delivered physical activities and exciting learning opportunities directly suited to our wonderful children. The staff at Condover were amazing and the super weather simply put the icing on a wonderful cake. Mrs. Brown, Mr. Smith, Miss Penman & Miss Grange are extremely proud of our daredevils. Enjoy the highlights – there were plenty.

Key Stage 1 Gymnastics 2017

We hosted four teams in the  Key Stage 1 gymnastics competition 2017.

We did extremely well and managed to secure 2nd place. Well done to event winners Hoyland Common. A special thank you to Mr. Smith and Miss Bennett for the coaching and choreography. The biggest mention is to Mandy for producing our beautiful team wear! A great afternoon, well done everyone.

Merry Christmas from MP Stephanie Peacock

We were delighted to welcome Stephanie Peacock MP for a special visit to West Meadows; a Christmas Card Winning Presentation! Fabulous designs were submitted from a collection of schools and children of all primary school ages within Stephanie’s constituency. Our two runners-up came from EYFS 2 and Year 3. However, the OVERALL winner and the design which Stephanie will sign 2000 times has come from our very own Year 6 superstar! He received a £50 Tesco voucher as well as a £10 book voucher for his stunning effort. A wonderful Friday at West Meadows. Thank you Stephanie – a pleasure to welcome you to school.
