Our #WonderfulCommunity 

Year 2 have been on a lovely walk around Hoyland to learn all about our town because our topic is Yorkshire. We saw lots of different shops, beautiful gardens created by the community and the library. The children were fabulous and we all recognise what a great place Hoyland is in which to live.

Remembrance Sunday 2018

 

Our School Council led us to the 11am Remembrance Service at Hoyland’s Cenotaph. Father Richard led the service to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts. This year, with Remembrance Sunday falling on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, we saw a vast number of people viewing the ceremony. The school’s wreath was laid and looked beautiful alongside similar offerings from our #WonderfulCommunity. A pleasure for West Meadows to attend such a moving and special occasion. Thank you to Ms. Steele & Mrs. Walton for their fabulous support.

Super Volunteers

 

We love these pictures of the new South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue recruits reading with our wonderful children. As part of their training course, the new recruits have been working with our community safety team to take the time to get to know the communities they hope to soon be serving. Eleven trainee firefighters visited us – they ae the 62nd class of new recruits. It was a pleasure hosting them at West Meadows. Thank you for inspiring us all.

Halloween 2018

Many thanks to our fabulous PTA for arranging our Halloween Disco 2018. It was a great afternoon attended by all classes. The children looked amazing, if a little terrifying too! Everyone had a great time and it appeared the age of the children didn’t matter as Baby Shark took over the afternoon! A great way to finish a hectic half term.

Walk to School
Thanks to our friend ‘BikeIt Dave’ who led us on a walk to school. We met several of our #WonderfulCommunity at Hoyland Coop and walked to West Meadows safely together. A brilliant, healthy initiative. Thank you to everyone who joined us; a superb effort.

Walk Zones

BikeIt Dave and Year 5 have been out and about posting signage of 5 and 10 minute walks to school! Promoting fitness, the children researched appropriate spots to reveal the walking distances to school. They had a great afternoon. Well done everyone.

Fabulous Families

 

What a way to end our year. We invited all of our wonderful families in to school to share a last day picnic. Our Year 6 superstar captured some of the event using our drone camera.  A brilliant way to end the year, our picnic was enjoyed by all. Thank you to everyone who was able to support the afternoon. Have a restful, exciting and safe summer.
