Enjoy the fruits of their Samba labours right here, it was certainly a performance to savour.

Year 5 Opera North Workshop 2

Year 5 enjoyed a terrific second workshop with Opera North in preparation for the World War Singing Event at Barnsley’s Civic Theatre.

The concert itself will be an extremely emotive evening and it is a huge honour for West Meadows to enjoy this event as stars of the show. Really well done Year 5 and thank you again to Opera North for sharing your incredible expertise.

The Human Bicycle

We had a fantastic time preparing and showcasing our Tour de Yorkshire tribute. Our wonderful caretaker Mr Armstrong used our line marking tool to create a giant bicycle on the field. Thanks to the work of Mrs Roberts and Mrs Steele our children re-enacted the movement of the wheels. With the use of our drone (thank you Mr. Child) we can see the aerial view and think you’ll agree, the helicopter pilots were in for a treat! A wonderful effort from everyone. Happy Tour de Yorkshire!
