Buddhism Awareness Day

We have had an amazing experience; two Buddhists visited West Meadows Primary School; Dharmamayi and Garava! First, we experienced a fun filled assembly retelling the story of Buddha with drama role play. We also learned about special symbols and what they mean to a Buddhist. Each class took part in a workshop where they learned about the history of Buddhism through art work, the pupils discovered new artefacts and how they were used, team games where children put giant jigsaw puzzles together showing different images from the faith, a quiz where the children learned the main beliefs of this special way of life and finally the peaceful meditation. We had a wonderful day and would like to thank our special visitors for delivering an insightful and terrific workshop. Many thanks also go to Mrs. Evans – our driving force in RE. A superb experience for our wonderful children.

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.

Thank You & Well Done

Wow just wow! Led by our Super Sisters from Years 3 and 5 our #WonderfulCommunity raised £140 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital (a charity VERY close to this lovely family’s heart). Along with £20 from a family friend and £40 from other family members, an amazing £200 was donated. The nurses were so pleased with their visit. The money will go to PACT (Parents of children with cancer and tumours) an organisation based at the hospital and will be used to help children and families undergoing gruelling chemotherapy treatment. Incredible work, really well done.
