Snow Fun 

We had a wonderful time enjoying the snow in school as one would expect! Years 4 and 5 are shown here building snow people, making angels and enjoying the freshly fallen snow! Thank you to all of the staff who helped prepare school ready for the children – Mr. Armstrong, Mr. Mitchell, Mrs. Dewson and Mrs. Maree certainly led the way to make sure we were all safe and that school was open on time! A great day enjoying some special weather.

Buddhism Awareness Day

We have had an amazing experience; two Buddhists visited West Meadows Primary School; Dharmamayi and Garava! First, we experienced a fun filled assembly retelling the story of Buddha with drama role play. We also learned about special symbols and what they mean to a Buddhist. Each class took part in a workshop where they learned about the history of Buddhism through art work, the pupils discovered new artefacts and how they were used, team games where children put giant jigsaw puzzles together showing different images from the faith, a quiz where the children learned the main beliefs of this special way of life and finally the peaceful meditation. We had a wonderful day and would like to thank our special visitors for delivering an insightful and terrific workshop. Many thanks also go to Mrs. Evans – our driving force in RE. A superb experience for our wonderful children.

Settle Yourselves Down – Years 3, 4 and 5 Christmas Performance

It’s a YES from everyone who was lucky enough to enjoy our Years 3-5 Christmas Performances!

Wow!

Our #WonderfulCommunity were entertained by over 90 children singing, dancing and acting in ‘Strictly Come the Xmas Factor!’ Our Musical Maestro (Mr. Ormondroyd) excelled himself with an entertaining show that displayed a tyrannical Mrs. Walton (she’s so lovely usually), a heartbroken Mr. Mitchell who was desperate for his water machine to work and an appearance by Father Christmas himself! But thankfully, it wasn’t a problem for our performing stars to shine at Christmas time as all entrants proved to be winners in the special script.

Thank you so much to the staff for their hard work, to our #WonderfulCommunity for the support and an enormous well done to Years 3, 4 and 5! An amazing experience to share.

Minecraft Code

Year 4 test drove our new Minecraft coding software. It was safe to say that the coding in scratch helped but the fact that it’s Minecraft made the children extremely excitable! Some terrific work, well done everybody.

Sounds Great to Us

Year 4 presented their learning on all things sound to a packed house. Thank you to our #WonderfulCommunity for supporting us as always. The children performed song, poetry, story time and science whilst sharing a tremendous amount of knowledge and some clear speaking skills to showcase all of this! Well done to all of the staff in Year 4 who prepared our stars wonderfully well. Of course, the hugest well done goes to the fantastic children for providing an afternoon to remember!

Happy Halloween!

What a fantastic day we all had on Thursday! Together with Y4 and some Y6 children, we took part in some spooky Halloween activities. We started off the day with a game of hide and seek. All of the ghosts and ghouls had to search for the children that were hiding around the school. One clever Y4 boy managed to escape from all of the spooky characters searching for him! Our next activity was the Haunted Catwalk. We took it in turns to creep our way towards the judges – the scariest moves won a prize! A famous spooky dance completed this activity which we all really enjoyed. Following this, Year 5 took part in some maths activities and later in the day we dished out the popcorn and settled down to a spooky film. To end our Halloween day, we attended an amazing disco that our wonderful PTA had arranged for us.
