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.

Thank You & Well Done

Wow just wow! Led by our Super Sisters from Years 3 and 5 our #WonderfulCommunity raised £140 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital (a charity VERY close to this lovely family’s heart). Along with £20 from a family friend and £40 from other family members, an amazing £200 was donated. The nurses were so pleased with their visit. The money will go to PACT (Parents of children with cancer and tumours) an organisation based at the hospital and will be used to help children and families undergoing gruelling chemotherapy treatment. Incredible work, really well done.

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.

Year 3 Assembly November 2017

Our #WonderfulCommunity was treated to a fabulous summary of our Year 3 Learning on Ancient Egypt in their first Class Assembly of the year. In less than a term, the children have learnt an incredible amount about The Ancient Civilisation. Song, Dance and presentations of work were all showcased with fabulous speaking skills – the Assembly even featured a Mummy and an appearance from Howard Carter himself!  Well done to all of the staff in Year 3 and of course the children and thank you to everybody from our #WonderfulCommunity who was able to support this memorable sharing event.

Year 3 Visit Hoyland St. Peter’s Church

Year 3 have been studying Christianity and the Church! They have looked at several features of the Church, so who better to provide a guided tour than our very own parish priest and school governor, Father Richard? We had a lovely time thanks to Father Richard’s hospitality – he provided a wonderful insight into Hoyland St. Peter’s. Thank you to Mrs. Evans for arranging this opportunity.

Year 3 @Exhibition Barnsley

Year 3 visited Experience Barnsley to learn all about the Ancient Egyptians. We firstly learnt all about the sacred scarab beetle and then made our own amulets with different designs. We even wrote our name in hieroglyphics! We then visited Cooper Gallery where we learnt about the interesting work of Harold Jones who became a well – known artist in Egypt. We worked hard to sketch some of his work. We had a wonderful day and even secured a tweet from the museum that shared with the world just how good our Year 3 children were. A great day, thank you to Mrs. Westwood and the team of staff for enabling our children to access such a brilliant opportunity.
