Year 2 Samba Stars

 

What a performance! Year 2 entertained our #WonderfulCommunity with some super Samba during their Arts Award presentation assembly. The children were superb and really made Mr. Ramskill our lovely percussion teacher and Mrs. Parkes extremely proud. Enjoy the fruits of their Samba labours right here, it was certainly a performance to savour.

Year 2 Breakfast

Year 2 went on the Wild Walk to make breakfast and explore our beautiful outside area. We made beans on toast and even lit the fire pit ourselves. We went on a Scavenger Hunt and made Bog Babies out of clay. What a fantastic adventure we had!

Our sensational dancing sisters have been collecting yet more accolades over the bank holiday weekend. In Year 2, this star has achieved second place in the whole of the North West Region for classical modern and sequence. She has been competing in the 6-8 years category. In Year 5, her elder sister entered the same competition for under 10s and for the second-year running was declared competition winner! A really remarkable achievement for both girls who showed their trophies off to Whole School Assembly. We are super proud of our dancing stars. Really well done. Two terrific West Meadows role models.

In Year 4 , this young man has shown great determination to prove himself in all areas and is always keen to prove he is ‘being the best that he can be.’ Two worthy winners following great testimonials from Mrs. Walton and Mrs. Parkes. Really well done to both boys.

Yorkshire Yorkshire Yorkshire

Year 2 have been preparing for our Tour de Yorkshire celebrations with the Tidy Team. They have begun to ‘Yarn Bomb’ a bike! I checked this term and even though it sounded quite scare, it means to cover an object or structure in a public place with decorative knitted or crocheted material, as a form of street art! We think that our results are amazing and we can’t wait to share our final efforts. Enormous thanks to Hazel and the Tidy Team, we love working with you as special friends and members of our #WonderfulCommunity
