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.’

Year 3 Visit TESCO

Year Three enjoyed the Farm to Fork visit at the local Tesco, they explored the store to find out which countries some of our fruit and vegetables come from and even got to taste some of them. They spent time in the back of the store learning how different foods are stored…the big chillers were freezing.

The Walk – Y1 Code

 

This amazing Year 1 Coder has produced ‘The Walk’ using Scratch Junior on his iPad. He selected a background suitable for a lovely walk along the beach. He chose to use the Cat Walking character and used two of these sprites. He used the keyboard to type his title, ‘The Walk.’ He then chose a lady character and provided her with 2 leads for her pets. The pets saw a shooting star as the sun went down and enjoyed their healthy walk.

Youdan Trophy 2018

 

We had a fantastic day at the Youdan competition at the world-renowned Sheffield United Academy today. The Academy has produced superstars such as Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire and David Brookes. We played three group games winning one and losing two, unfortunately failing to progress into the knockout stages. We did however have a wonderful day which our children thoroughly enjoyed. It was a great opportunity for the children to play at a world class facility and really put their skills to the test against some well organised teams from all over South Yorkshire. Special thanks to Mr. Smith & Miss Grange for their leadership throughout the event.

Headteacher’s Superstar Award

Our Headteacher’s Superstar from Key Stage 1 is from Year 1. She’s a superb role model for all of her friends and is making tremendous progress in all areas. In Key Stage 2, a broken arm wasn’t stopping this young man from 100% commitment to his test week! Two richly deserving superstars, really well done.

Pentecost 2018

Father Richard and Father Paul joined us to celebrate Pentecost. Some Christians believe this event represents the birthday of the Church. As a result we used balloons to celebrate! The holy day is also called “White Sunday” or “Whitsunday”, especially in the United Kingdom, where traditionally the next day, Whit Monday, is also a public holiday. The Monday after Pentecost is a legal holiday in many European nations too. Thank you to Father Richard and Father Paul for spending more time at West Meadows – it’s always a privilege to welcome them.

Minecraft Skills

Years 5 and 6 have been using their Creative Computing Skills within Minecraft to celebrate the Royal Wedding. They have constructed wedding scenes and coded in scripts for characters to read out. The children manipulated lighting and recorded the screens themselves to share with the internet. Great work, really well done.
