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!

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. Matt and Rachel were just amazing with the children as they produced a vast array of war time classics. 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.

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.
