SMAT Football 2018

A wonderful afternoon was enjoyed by two of our Football Teams at Barnsley FC’s Oakwell Stadium as we attended the St. Mary’s Academy Trust Football Competition 2018. Congratulations to Darton Primary for their win in the Years 5/6 Boys Tournament. Our team came a very respectable third place and had a very uniform record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. The Year 3/4 Girls Team were also terrific. Playing as a team for the first time they finished fourth, a tremendous effort. Many thanks to St. Mary’s Academy Trust for making the afternoon possible, it was a wonderful opportunity for our children to enjoy such a fabulous facility. The supporting friends and family were brilliant as always. To crown the afternoon’s events, our girls won the Team Spirit Award for their tremendous sense of fair play and commitment to the West Meadows badge! A really wonderful afternoon, well done to everyone. A special thank you to Mr. Mitchell and Miss Grange for their coaching abilities too.

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

Dance 2018

We attended the Locality Dance Competition hosted by Tankersley – thank you to them for this. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and there were some great performances from every school involved. Our Dance team were superb, gave their all and were a real credit to themselves and school! We finished as Runners Up and lost out to the eventual winner, Hoyland Common, by only two points! A huge well done to all the children involved and a special thank you to Miss Knox for all her hard work with the choreography and to Mandy Davies for the amazing costumes that she has made for our lovely children! As always, thank you to all the parents that attended and for all your support! We really couldn’t do it without you!

League Season Draws to a Close

Another fantastic afternoon of Football for the Year 5/6 team in the Locality Football League. Two brilliant team performances yet again and another 6 points on the board with a 3:0 victory against Jump and a last minute 1:0 win against Greenfield. That leaves us with a final haul of 14 points, after 4 wins, 2 draws and just the one defeat. We currently sit at the top of the table, however, other teams have a game in hand and could overtake us so fingers crossed the results go our way! It’s been a great season all in all, one the boys can be really proud of, they have been a real credit to themselves, school and our wonderful community. #AimHighSucceedBeHappy A special thank you to Mr. Smith and all of the families for their great support.

Football Crazy At West Meadows

West Meadows Football team took part in two Football League fixtures at Stadio Del West Meadows. In the first game we defeated Tankersley 5:1 – at half time we were one down! A fantastic second half performance from the whole team! The second fixture ended in a 0:0 draw in the local derby against Hoyland Common. The game was a fantastic advert for junior football, two committed teams battling it out for the duration of the game, a fair result in a game where both teams cancelled each other out, a huge well done to both sides. All in all a great day for Football here at West Meadows, another 4 points notched, going into the final two league games after half term, we are really proud of our team, a real credit to themselves and school. Thank you to Mr. Smith for his coaching and to Mr. Armstrong for the immaculate playing facilities.

We hosted four teams in the  Key Stage 1 gymnastics competition 2017.
