Adventure Challenge Finals Day

 

We had a fantastic day on Tuesday at the South Yorkshire School Games Adventure Challenge Finals day at Abbeydale Sports Club in Sheffield. The children took part in four different challenges and worked fantastically well as a team, showing great team work, communication skills and resilience throughout. It was down to this performance that the team managed to secure the runners up for the whole of South Yorkshire. What an outstanding achievement and a huge well done to all involved

Key Stage 2 Rounders

 

We attended the final Locality Competition of the year at Birdwell, KS2 Rounders. We had a fantastic afternoon in glorious sunshine and played some fantastic Rounders, working as a team and showing great sportsmanship throughout. The first group fixture finished as a draw against Greenfield, followed up by two well deserved victories against Hoyland Common and Tankersley leading us into the final against Springwood. It was a brilliant final, however we were just edged out by a strong Springwood team and finished as Runners Up. Well done everyone and thank you to Mr. Smith as ever for his inspirational leadership of all things sport at West Meadows.

Sports Day 2018

 

What an afternoon we had at the English Institute of Sport, Sheffield for Sports Day 2018! All Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and EYFS 2 children travelled to Sheffield and competed in a range of events. They weren’t the only athletes as we saw 2 adult races to end the day. Many thanks to Mr. Smith & The St. Mary’s Academy Trust Sports’ Leaders for their organisation of this terrific event. Athletic skills in several disciplines were tested as children earned individual points for their team tally. Some super sportsmanship was on show and we must thank our #WonderfulCommunity for the large levels of support, especially during the finishing section for our EYFS 2 hero – he moved several to tears! . Thanks to our office staff for arranging the coaches for the day and thank you to all staff for supporting the event. A super, special mention to Mr. Smith for a great day that I know all of the children enjoyed! A special experience for our special stars.

Sponsored Walk

 

Year 6 have taken part in a sponsored walk from School to Old Moor in Manvers to raise money for a visit to Eden Camp.  The children were fantastic and gave their all throughout the 11 mile round trip. The sun shone all day, which made it even more difficult, but we didn’t hear any complaints as the children just got their heads down and marched on! Thank you to everyone who has sponsored us, we are incredibly grateful for your continued support!

Key Stage 2 Athletics

 

We attended the Locality Key Stage 2 Athletics competition at the Dorothy Hyman Stadium, Cudworth on what was a scorching afternoon! The events included 100m, 200m, Javelin and Long Jump.

Overall, we finished in 3rd place out of 8 schools, which was an amazing achievement and thoroughly deserved. Well done to all involved.

Schools Baton 2018

To celebrate the success of the Tour de Yorkshire, a special baton is touring ‘God’s Own Country’ to visit schools to promote cycling and the benefits it has for our children and adults. Thanks to our friend ‘Bike-It Dave’ for including us in the tour, the children received the baton very enthusiastically. Our winning banner looked magnificent too. A brilliant afternoon, well done to everyone involved. Following the ceremonial arrival of the schools’ baton, Bike-It Dave led a cycling session with Year 6. A great session was enjoyed thoroughly by everyone.

Golf 2018

 

On Friday afternoon we made the short trip to Hoyland Common for the annual KS2 Tri Golf Competition. It was a fantastic afternoon and the standard of Golf from all schools was incredible. Some really low scores were posted (this is positive) and we managed to clinch third place which is an amazing achievement. As always, the boys were a real credit to themselves and the school. A special shout out goes out to our Year 2 pupil, who posted the best score in his group against children who are 3/4 years older than him! Well done!

Cricket 2018

 

On Tuesday we entered the KS2 South Yorkshire Schools Kwik Cricket Qualifiers at Shaw Lane. We had a fantastic afternoon and some great Cricket was played by the team.  We won the first game by 6 runs against Shawlands but unfortunately lost in the second game by 17 runs against a strong Thurgoland team. Due to this loss we just missed out on qualification for the next stage, however we had a great afternoon and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all the lads. A big thanks goes to Dean from Yorkshire CCC for organising the event.
