Enterprise Day 2017

What a day for all of our wonderful Year 5 and 6 Children! They collaborated together in new look teams to plan a musical based piece of playground equipment. Led by Paul & Paul of Louder than Life Ltd it’s fair to say our children made a wonderful impression on our special visitors – here’s their testimonial, “I just wanted to send you an email to say how amazing all the children were on Friday! We have worked in lots of primary schools throughout this competition, Paul and myself were literally blown away by how polite, how  kind, their attitude, behaviour and work rate. They were all a pleasure to teach and that’s credit to you and your staff. Could you please also mention a big thank you to your staff who couldn’t have been more accommodating towards us. Everyone from reception, support staff and teachers really made us feel at home at your brilliant school.” The children had to work within budget, consider potential customers and then convince a panel of judges as to why their designs should be considered for production! Well done everybody and thank you to Paul & Paul; a memorable day at West Meadows.

This Little of Mine

Have a listen to our latest favourite song – we know we have many but ‘This Little Light of Mine,’ sounds wonderful! We’re biased but we do like the sound of our own voices.

Awesome Art & Perfect Poetry

Year 5 have been inspired by the poem, ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes and a poem, ‘The Highway Rat,’ from Julia Donaldson based on Noyes’ famous text. ‘Give me your buns and your biscuits! Give me your chocolate eclairs! For I am the Rat of the highway, and the Rat Thief never shares!’ Life is not safe for all other animals, as the Highway Rat gallops along the highway, stealing their food. Clover from a rabbit; nuts from a squirrel – he even steals his own horse’s hay. The children chose their own animal to produce as a Highway Outlaw; their creations were fantastic. Well done everyone, some fabulous villains!

Year 6 Diwali Day

The Year 6 children have been learning about the celebration of Diwali. They enjoyed the Story of Rama and Sita and then researched a range of Diwali celebrations and customs. The children took part in carousel activities: one group created diva lights from clay; another made Rangoli patterns from different materials; some children designed Mehndi patterns, before having these painted on their hands, using lemon juice and coffee and finally, a group designed masks and performed the story of Rama and Sita to the class. We had an amazing morning! Thank you to Mrs. Evans for arranging such a special morning!

Dynamic Drones

We hosted Teach 24 for a fantastic Assembly where they demonstrated the power of Code! Many tasks to our Assembly Hosts, the children absolutely loved the drones – especially the one which flew perilously close to Mr. Smith! A super morning inspired by iPad tech!

Meet a Creature

Year 4 had a special visit from ‘Meet a Creature’, who introduced us to our new topic all about the Amazon Rainforest. We looked at some amazing creatures that live in the Rainforest and had a go at some live sketching, which turned out amazingly. (see display outside the classroom). We then got to interact with the creatures. This included, holding a Royal Python, Tarantula, Gecko, Corn Snake, Chameleon, Frog and many more. After lunch, we watched how the different creatures moved to get around and worked together as a team to try and recreate their movements. (not easy). After that we drew giant food chains from the Amazon. Finally, we got to choose our favourite creature of the day, and had our photograph taken. What an amazing opportunity. We loved the day and we learned so much about the Amazon Rainforest’s inhabitants!
