He has impressed Mrs. Westwood greatly and really shone as a wonderful role model. Really well done, two awards that were richly deserved.

Year 3 Class Assembly – Monet, Animal Antics and Much More

 

Where do we start? Year 3 shared their term’s learning with our #WonderfulCommunity and managed to incorporate an amazing number of subjects. As well as Science, Art, Music, English and ICT, they even managed to arrange visits from animals and Claude Monet himself! Science and Art really proved to be superb driving forces of the Assembly as a full house remained captivated for its entire duration. Thank you to Mrs. Westwood, Mrs. Hannaghan, Miss Grange, Mrs. Roberts and Miss Parkinson for their terrific hard work with the children. An enormous well done to the wonderful performers involved. A spectacular end to what has been a terrific term in Year 3.

Year 3 Magnificent Monet

Year 3 have produced some magnificent art in the style of Monet. They have used Monet’s work and then recreated his technique using simple finger impressions. Our Impressionist Painters have worked extremely hard on this project. Enjoy their efforts right here.

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.
