My First Day At School

Only once EVER do we have our very first day at school. This week we’ve seen some new children start their West Meadows journey in EYFS. We were keen to show our families what we offer; they were invited to come and share this special time. The children were just wonderful and settled impressively. Welcome to West Meadows – we can’t wait to make and enjoy so many exciting memories!

Come and Play in EYFS 1

Our wonderful Nursery Staff hosted a ‘Come and Play’ day which was attended enthusiastically by our terrifically supportive #WonderfulCommunity. Our friends and families enjoyed working on some of the activities we offer within school and we know the children really loved sharing their efforts! Well done everyone for such a positive day at West Meadows and thank you to our team for hosting the initiative.

EYFS Nativities 

Wow! What amazing performances! Our youngest stars have been showcasing their music, dance and acting skills to a packed audience. The most amazing story of the Nativity was just beautiful and we are SO proud of everyone within EYFS – staff and pupils alike! Thank you to everybody who has supported us – enjoy the performance right here time and time again!

EYFS Rhyme Day

What a day! Our fantastic EYFS Superstars provided our #WonderfulCommunity with an amazing Nursery Rhyme recital! They even finished by taking requests! The Nursery Rhyme sponsored event will help us to provide some new facilities for our EYFS outdoor provision. Thank you to everyone who has supported us; a brilliant morning and some super singing.

Colour in EYFS 1

We have been exploring colours through a story about magical glasses which allows each day to be a different colour. The children discussed their favourite colour and made their own magical glasses. Look at the fantastic results right here!

Extraordinary Engineering

When do we learn to become engineers? Of course, at West Meadows it all starts in our Nursery! Using our computer, and interactive screen, this young man has already shown tremendous application and an interest in the motor industry. Some fabulous work, really well done!

Goodbye Miss Beever

What can we say? Firstly, good luck. Secondly, we’ll miss you! West Meadows has been extremely fortunate to have had 16 years’ service from Miss Beever, a wonderful professional. She is a credit to herself and family (we’ll look after our Jane) and we couldn’t be prouder that so many of West Meadows’ special qualities will travel so far! A life changing opportunity that Miss Beever couldn’t miss – remember she’ll still be tweeting! Fare thee well – we’ll miss you greatly!

EYFS New Area

What a transformation! We have converted our EYFS Staffroom in to a super new learning area for our youngest stars. The children are able to use the space to work in small, focussed groups. We are delighted with the finished product. Thank you Miss Jones for your design skills – it looks super!

EYFS Scavenger Hunt

Our EYFS 1 Children (both morning & afternoon) welcomed friends and families to see and use our lovely Outdoor Area – ‘Wild Walk.’ Our staff and children absolutely love Outdoor Learning and enjoy devoting school time to a range of exciting activities. We were keen to show how we are able to take educational risks in a safe environment, take part in a Scavenger Hunt and enjoy using some of our science equipment. We had a wonderful family day and we aim to invite our families back to Wild Walk some time soon. Thank you to everyone who attended, special mention to Mrs. Roberts & Miss Beever – our Outdoor Leaders.

Learning Book Guide

Many thanks to Miss Jones & Miss Jobling who presented our ‘Learning Book’ EYFS system to an amazing amount of our #WonderfuCommunity. Parents, Carers and families can see exactly what our youngest stars have been up to at West Meadows and also enjoy the notes made from our superb EYFS Staff Team. A fantastic showcase, well done everybody.

Outdoor Learning in EYFS

We had lots of fun mark making in a variety of ways. We used chalk and sticks to make marks on tyres, concrete and in sand and mud. We investigated how far our vehicles could roll down a ramp and created our own Hop Scotch Games.
