Thank you to Kieran and the team at Barnsley FC Community – we love Toby Tyke and had a wonderful morning with him in school – staff and children alike!

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.

What a Beautiful Baby

What a wonderful pair of performances! Years 1, 2 and 6 combined to entertain our very enthusiastic and appreciative audiences with their nativity, skilfully written by our own Maestro – Mr. Ormondroyd (Thank you and well done to him.) The children were absolutely superb as they acted, danced and of course sang their hearts out. Thank you to all of the staff for their hard work preparing the stars of the stage and of course to our #WonderfulCommunity for the huge ticket sales! An absolutely wonderful representation of the most beautiful story.

Key Stage 1 Gymnastics 2017

We hosted four teams in the  Key Stage 1 gymnastics competition 2017. The children spent the entire week learning and practicing a two minute routine which had to include a forward roll, a stretched jump and a one footed balance. We did extremely well and managed to secure 2nd place. Well done to event winners Hoyland Common. A special thank you to Mr. Smith and Miss Bennett for the coaching and choreography. The biggest mention is to Mandy for producing our beautiful team wear! A great afternoon, well done everyone.

Merry Christmas from MP Stephanie Peacock

We were delighted to welcome Stephanie Peacock MP for a special visit to West Meadows; a Christmas Card Winning Presentation! Fabulous designs were submitted from a collection of schools and children of all primary school ages within Stephanie’s constituency. Our two runners-up came from EYFS 2 and Year 3. However, the OVERALL winner and the design which Stephanie will sign 2000 times has come from our very own Year 6 superstar! He received a £50 Tesco voucher as well as a £10 book voucher for his stunning effort. A wonderful Friday at West Meadows. Thank you Stephanie – a pleasure to welcome you to school.

Geography, Orienteering, Drumming – thank you Mr. Ranskill and a weather forecast/ report proved extremely entertaining to a captivated audience.

National Stars of Dance

We are delighted – and extremely proud – to display our two National Dancing Stars. After qualifying for the National Championships via the North West regional event, they attended the contest at Norbreck Castle in Blackpool. From Year 5, our dancing star competed against children up to two years her senior and achieved a wonderful 6th place in the national standings! This was in Classical and Modern Sequence. A fabulous achievement. From Year 2, competing in the same disciplines at her younger age group, our superstar became International Dance Teachers Association National Champion! We are delighted to share these outstanding achievements and could not be any prouder. What an amazing weekend for the girls and their lovely family.

Year 2 Orienteering Stars

We worked together as a team to try our hand at orienteering. We had to find different check points around the school grounds using an aerial photograph of the school. Teamwork was key as we all had different roles to play in locating the different places on the photograph.  We used our knowledge of physical features that we recognised, to locate the cards.  We needed to collect six different cards showing places within Yorkshire to complete the event.
