Some superb work in Year 6 – the Maths has been all around calculations, “BODMAS” and completing calculations in the correct order. Fabulous work, really well done.

Our #WonderfulCommunity 

Year 2 have been on a lovely walk around Hoyland to learn all about our town because our topic is Yorkshire. We saw lots of different shops, beautiful gardens created by the community and the library. The children were fabulous and we all recognise what a great place Hoyland is in which to live.

Parliament Matters

Year Six have taken part in UK Parliament week 2018. We discussed how the UK parliamentary system works and how motions are passed through the House of Commons. We then created our own political campaigns and thought of slogans to help get our messages across in a memorable way. As a class we then voted which bill we though should be passed.

Remembrance Sunday 2018

 

Our School Council led us to the 11am Remembrance Service at Hoyland’s Cenotaph. Father Richard led the service to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts. This year, with Remembrance Sunday falling on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, we saw a vast number of people viewing the ceremony. The school’s wreath was laid and looked beautiful alongside similar offerings from our #WonderfulCommunity. A pleasure for West Meadows to attend such a moving and special occasion. Thank you to Ms. Steele & Mrs. Walton for their fabulous support.

Key Stage 2 Football 2018

 

West Meadows staged our locality Key Stage 2 Football Tournament. Many thanks to Mr. Armstrong and Miss Grange, the field looked terrific as we hosted all of our local schools. A thrilling afternoon for the West Meadows’ Faithful ended in semi-final defeat to eventual winners Ward Green. However, a strong group stage showing featuring a draw with Hoyland Common, a win against Hoyland Springwood and a draw with Birdwell made Miss Grange extremely proud of her stars. Thank you to Daz Wilkie and the firefighters who helped with the tournament officiating by way of their work in the community. A great day, well done to all of the teams who played some terrific football.

Learn to Ride 2018

 

Many thanks to our friend ‘Bike It Dave’ who visited us to teach our Year 1 and 2 children how to ride without the use of stabilisers. The day was superb as lots of Mums and families joined our peddling stars in a bid to boost their skills further. A great effort from everyone, really well done.

Year 1 Cross Buns

 

Sensational work from Year 1! They have been working hard on their Glockenspiel skills with Mr. Ormondroyd and are sounding absolutely terrific. Our marvellous musicians even enjoy the limelight by way of playing solos. Enjoy their progress here. A great effort so far.

Memorable Homework

This Year 5 superstar has produced some wonderful work at home. Based upon the 100 year end to WW1, she has been inspired by the efforts of the Royal British Legion and our #WonderfulCommunity in raising money and awareness for this wonderful cause. Some sensational work, really well done.
