Excellent Elmer

Elmer the elephant has proved extremely popular in EYFS 2. The children have accessed lots and lots of work in so many subjects to share their skills and it’s all based around the colourful elephant! Well done everyone, some beautiful pieces. We can all see just how much progress you are making every single day.

Harvest 2017 

We staged our annual Harvest Festival at St. Peter’s Church Hoyland in front of a wonderfully supportive congregation. Children from EYFS 2 and Years 1-2 gave a superb performance of art, poetry, prayer and song to celebrate the fruits of the earth. Many thanks to Mrs. Evans for her coordination of this event – it was simply beautiful. Thanks to all Staff for their support of the event not least Mr. Ormondroyd for the musical accompaniment and Mr. Smith for the film. Thank you to Father Richard and Father Paul for allowing us to utilise our beautiful Church and special thanks to our #WonderfulCommunity for your support and attendance. Well done to everyone involved in this fabulous service; some wonderful messages were shared in a charming, creative and engaging way.

A Whole Day!

One of the most exciting things about your first full day in school is definitely the chance to eat lunch with everyone! Clearly, the ‘Sunday Dinner’ option proved popular with all of our EYFS 2 children. Thank you to Lynne and the kitchen team and all of our staff who made the children welcome. It was obvious they enjoyed their brand new lunchtime arrangements!

Jack and the Beanstalk

Well Key Stage 1 certainly know how to entertain a crowd. On Thursday morning we saw FS2, Y1 and Y2 perform their latest play ‘Jack and the Beanstalk!’ to a sell out audience. The 25 minute musical was loved by all. The singing, acting and musicians certainly did their parents, teachers and our #WonderfulCommunity very proud. It was an amazing achievement by all children involved. Well done Key Stage 1, you’re all musical superstars! A special thank you to Mr. Ormondroyd for his musical leadership. A brilliant morning and definitely one to remember!

Wild Walk Stars

The F2 children had a fantastic time on the WIld Walk with their parents and grown-ups from home. They took part in a scavenger hunt and a minibeast hunt using the special pooters to suck up the bugs. They used the items they had found on their scavenger hunt to make a special picture to take home. They planted a sunflower seed to take home and watch it grow. They loved making dens and charcoal pictures and sharing the outdoors with their families. The children used lots of language to talk about what they were doing and loved sharing the experience with their families.

Children have watched Ash perform has tricks in assembly this morning and have then had the chance to try them out for themselves! We’ve been so impressed at how well the children listened and learned and how quick they were able to perform some of the tricks, some you will have seen on twitter!

Once again, a huge thank you to Ash for giving up his time and spending what’s been another action-packed day here at West Meadows!
