Special visitor from Kirk Balk AcademyY

Mr Moore, Head of Lower School, came to discuss secondary school with our wonderful Year 6 children and answer some of their questions.
He commented on the children’s impeccable behaviour and their mature questions. Well done Year 6 – a great first impression is always helpful for anyone!

Enjoy the wonderful sounds of Thorpe Hesley Band – of course being contributed to by our very own Year 6 hero. Some wonderful melodies were shared at Wentworth Woodhouse. We are very proud of one of our superstars entertaining our #WonderfulCommunity

Class of 2017 – Farewell

Well the moment finally arrived! And there were more than a few hankies and tissues at the ready as we said our goodbyes to our wonderful Year 6 children. The children composed their own Leavers’ Assembly for our #WonderfulCommunity as the superstars shared some wonderful memories of their time at our lovely school. We’d like to thank the families and friends of our departing stars for their support throughout their time at our school and most importantly thank the children for being a wonderful collection of West Meadows role models. Of course, “Good luck in the future!” Do as you did here and you won’t need it!”

Rounders 2017

We attended our final competition of the year; Rounders hosted by Birdwell.  The children were simply amazing from ball one, winning all three group fixtures comfortably to ease through to a final showdown against the hosts Birdwell.  A fantastic batting display saw us set a target of 7 points.  The children followed up the batting with an even better display in the field with run out after run out, restricting Birdwell to just the three points! What a way to finish the school year, also meaning we have won the Rounders competition three out of the last four years! Well done to all involved – and a special thank you to the wonderful Mr. Smith!

Key Stage 2 Athletics

Our team of Key Stage 2 athletes travelled to Dorothy Hyman Stadium in Cudworth for the Locality KS2 Athletics competition. We came third overall and produced some memorable performances; not least in the Year 5 Relay! We had superb support (thank you #WonderfulCommunity) and the children were a credit to our lovely school. Thank you, Mr. Smith, for making another brilliant opportunity open to our wonderful children. A great afternoon.

Fabulous Freestyle

What an amazing day we’ve had here at West Meadows! What a privilege it’s been to have football freestyle world record holder Ash Randall in school all day. Children have watched Ash perform has tricks in assembly this morning and have then had the chance to try them out for themselves! We’ve been so impressed at how well the children listened and learned and how quick they were able to perform some of the tricks, some you will have seen on twitter!

Once again, a huge thank you to Ash for giving up his time and spending what’s been another action-packed day here at West Meadows!

Enterprise Extravaganza

The West Meadows winning Enterprise Team were excellent ambassadors as they represented school at the Holiday Inn, Dodworth.  The children had a fun packed day where lots of schools came together to form a huge samba band, they practised their enterprise pitch and eventually met the judges for the real thing.   It was an amazing experience for all – one which we would definitely recommend!

Year 6 Leavers 2017

Yorkshire’s East Coast provided us with an amazing day for our wonderful Year 6 Leavers, Class of 2017. We had a brilliant time playing on the beach, enjoying Ice Creams, Fish & Chips and a Steam Rail ride in to the beautiful town of Scarborough. We also loved Filey Beach and basked in the most glorious sunshine, enjoying the company of our fellow St. Mary’s Academy Trust Schools. Many thanks to our Academy Trust for helping to arrange the visit, it was amazing and many memories were made that will last forever. Year 6 were immaculate in their behaviour and we couldn’t be prouder of their efforts at West Meadows. Thank you to our lovely staff for accompanying the children on their special day, Mr. Ormondroyd and Mr. Smith were entertainers worthy of the stage!

Headteacher’s Superstar Award

Our latest Headteacher’s Superstar has had an amazing run in Year 6. One of our superb West Meadows Ambassadors, she has proven inspirational in her learning and determination to succeed in all subjects, notably during Key Stage 2 SATs. She then produced a fabulous performance as our top scorer in the Girls’ Football Tournament at Jump Primary School. A wonderful example to us all. Many congratulations and well done.

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.
