Kielder Challenge 2018

We had a fantastic day at Abbey School taking part in the annual SMAT Kielder Challenge. The children took part in some team building activities and were scored on their teamwork, planning and communication skillls. They really worked hard as a team and planned each event using everyone’s ideas and opinions. As always the children were a real credit to themselves and school and finished as runners up!! They have now qualified for the South Yorkshire School Games Kielder Challenge finals day. Wish them luck!!!

Wonderful Writing

 

Miss Jobling has been bowled over by the quality of our independent writers in EYFS. They have been enjoying ‘Farmer Duck’ so much that the authors here have created their own versions of the story. Some terrific work, really well done everyone.

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.

Creative Arts Week 2018

What a week and where to start? The whole school had a sensational time during Creative Arts Week, all themed around China. Mrs Parkes did a magnificent job organising a host of exciting activities and visitors as the film reveals. A sensational week incorporated dance, music, food, art and even lantern flights. Well done everyone, we all know SO much more about another exciting culture. A week to remember.

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!

Clean Air Day 2018

 

We had a very special day and some special visitors at West Meadows as we celebrated Clean Air Day 2018. We became the first school EVER in Barnsley to close the road at school time (courtesy of Barnsley Council) so that we could walk to school, cycle or scoot to school and even enjoy a walking bus with Dave the Histrionics story teller! The children enjoyed a breakfast on West Street as well as Art games, cycling and scooting. The day was so special that it even got the attention of ITV Calendar as we became TV Stars overnight. Thank you to our friend ‘Bike-It Dave’ and his friends at Barnsley Council. The biggest mention goes to our #WonderfulCommunity for the amazing support shown to us as always. Well done everyone, it was great to enjoy some even cleaner air than usual in lovely Hoyland.

Blackpool 2018

 

What a day! Our amazing Year 6 Leavers had a great time beside the sea in Blackpool. We loved Madame Tussauds, we loved the beach even more and then finished off the morning with some delicious fish and chips – what else? We were then amazed by the Tower Circus and some truly breathtaking acrobatics, hilarious clown play and incredible live music. The weather was simply glorious and all the ingredients led to a truly memorable day away from school to thank this fabulous group of role models for all their hard work at West Meadows. A wonderful day, richly deserved. Thank you to St. Mary’s Academy Trust and to our Year 6 staff for making the day such a special occasion.

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. The children were absolutely fantastic in every event and as always gave their all and were a real credit to themselves and School. Overall, we finished in 3rd place out of 8 schools, which was an amazing achievement and thoroughly deserved. Well done to all involved. Thank you to Mr. Smith & Miss Grange for their support – a super afternoon.
