Adventure Challenge Finals Day

 

We had a fantastic day on Tuesday at the South Yorkshire School Games Adventure Challenge Finals day at Abbeydale Sports Club in Sheffield. The children took part in four different challenges and worked fantastically well as a team, showing great team work, communication skills and resilience throughout. It was down to this performance that the team managed to secure the runners up for the whole of South Yorkshire. What an outstanding achievement and a huge well done to all involved

Eden Camp 2018

 

Year 6, accompanied by some Year 5s, had a wonderful day at Eden Camp, North Yorkshire. A former Prisoner of War Camp, the Museum is dedicated largely to World War II – a recent topic. Some of the Evacuee Outfits were simply amazing as our children as well as several excited adults were evacuated to the North! Exhibitions such as Women At War, The Home Front, The Blitz & The U-Boat Menace ensured we reviewed our learning but also learnt an enormous amount of new information. Thank you to all of the supporting adults, well done to Mrs. Brown for organising the trip and especially well done to all 38 children who had a special day away from School. The Gift Shop Manager was certainly pleased to see all of them! A day to remember!

Sponsored Walk

 

Year 6 have taken part in a sponsored walk from School to Old Moor in Manvers to raise money for a visit to Eden Camp.  The children were fantastic and gave their all throughout the 11 mile round trip. The sun shone all day, which made it even more difficult, but we didn’t hear any complaints as the children just got their heads down and marched on! Thank you to everyone who has sponsored us, we are incredibly grateful for your continued support!

Blackpool 2018

 

What a day! Our amazing Year 6 Leavers had a great time beside the sea in Blackpool. We loved Madame Tussauds, we loved the beach even more and then finished off the morning with some delicious fish and chips – what else? We were then amazed by the Tower Circus and some truly breathtaking acrobatics, hilarious clown play and incredible live music. The weather was simply glorious and all the ingredients led to a truly memorable day away from school to thank this fabulous group of role models for all their hard work at West Meadows. A wonderful day, richly deserved. Thank you to St. Mary’s Academy Trust and to our Year 6 staff for making the day such a special occasion.

Key Stage 2 Athletics

 

We attended the Locality Key Stage 2 Athletics competition at the Dorothy Hyman Stadium, Cudworth on what was a scorching afternoon! The events included 100m, 200m, Javelin and Long Jump. The children were absolutely fantastic in every event and as always gave their all and were a real credit to themselves and School. Overall, we finished in 3rd place out of 8 schools, which was an amazing achievement and thoroughly deserved. Well done to all involved. Thank you to Mr. Smith & Miss Grange for their support – a super afternoon.

Meadowhall Magic

 

When you’re an Apple Expert where else better to share your work than the Apple Store at Meadowhall? This Year 6 superstar produced his guide to Apple products and then utilised screen sharing software to use their new display to share his efforts with the whole store. Sensational work, really well done young man!

Schools Baton 2018

To celebrate the success of the Tour de Yorkshire, a special baton is touring ‘God’s Own Country’ to visit schools to promote cycling and the benefits it has for our children and adults. Thanks to our friend ‘Bike-It Dave’ for including us in the tour, the children received the baton very enthusiastically. Our winning banner looked magnificent too. A brilliant afternoon, well done to everyone involved. Following the ceremonial arrival of the schools’ baton, Bike-It Dave led a cycling session with Year 6. A great session was enjoyed thoroughly by everyone.
