Family Cooking Club
Our families have thoroughly enjoyed the weekly cooking clubs at school, learning how to make a wide range of delicious dishes - such as curries and stir fries, using fresh ingredients. They always look forwards to their tea on Wednesday!
Visiting the Mayor of Rotherham
Our Choir had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Mayor of Rotherham at the town hall this week. She kindly invited them following their performance at the Christmas Tree Festival at Brampton Church.
The children were fascinated with the story about her chain and enjoyed asking her questions, using the microphones like all the counsellors do. They learned all about what happens in the town hall, the current Mayor, her interests, hobbies and charities and enjoyed a tour around the Town Hall, learning about the previous mayors. Some of our Y6 Student council members were very interested in how to become a mayor too!
They finished the visit with a brief performance to the Mayor and colleagues too and were very grateful to receive a keepsake gift from the Mayor too. We were very proud of the children. A wonderful opportunity and very interesting trip, thoroughly enjoyed by all!
At our recent Movement Evening at Wath Comp, our Y5 and 6 pupils were fantastic in their performance of 'Under the Sea' from the The little Mermaid as part of the Disney theme this year.
They received a huge applaud from the crowd. They also looked amazing in their costumes.
A huge thank you goes to Mrs Wydell and Mrs Wattam for their creative sewing skills and for kind donation for other costumes from Mrs Griffin's PTA funds.
Family Pottery Club
Our Family Pottery Club was a real success last term. Both parents and children who attended thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to test out their creative skills with clay, producing some beautiful piece of art each week.
Here are some photos of work completed by our new playground buddies, as part of our work with Mrs Foxley-Johnson (local authority anti bullying officer). She has trained a group of selected pupils to be playground buddies - lead by Miss Brookes.

Young Voices 2018
Last week our choir had the amazing opportunity of taking part in the Young Voices Concert at Sheffield Arena along with over 5,000 other children from all over the country.
This year they had the privilege of accompanying popular soul/jazz artist Natalie Williams, vocal harmony and beatboxing artists, 'The M4GNETS', and from our very own town, 16 year old singer and guitarist Alfie Sheard.
They also enjoyed amazing performances from dance group Urban Strides too. It was a fantastic night enjoyed by all.
Y4 and Y1 at RSPB Old Moor Nature Reserve
The Y4 and Y1 children thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the RSPB Old Moor Nature Reserve. They were fascinated by the facts and information learned.
West Melton Primary Choir at Christmas
The choir had a busy week. On Friday they were invited to Brampton Ellis church to open up the Christmas Tree Festival. They performed four songs in front of the Mayor of Rotherham, who was so impressed that she has invited the choir down to the Town Hall for a tour.
We also entered our own Christmas tree, beautifully designed and decorated by our Year 2 pupils with the help of Mrs Beaumont, Miss Brooks and Mrs Wydell, along the theme of peace and friendship - and our tree was the winner too!
The choir were also invited to perform at Rotherham Minster Christmas Carol Concert, along with other primaries in Rotherham and Rotherham College of Arts. They performed 'What Christmas means to me' and 'O Holy night'.
Well done to our soloists Doriana Martins, Casey Edwards and Sinead Williams. They sang beautifully. Very Proud!
Here are photos of our brand new trim trail - the children are really excited about this and can't wait to enjoy using this during their breaktimes.
Half Term Holiday Club
The Holiday Club went really well - over the 2 days the children enjoyed gymnastics, tennis, basketball, various obstacle courses, football and bench ball.
We had a great time at our Halloween party that was run by Mrs Griffin and kindly funded by our Parents Association. There were some fantastic costumes and lots of fun was had by all.
Thanks to Mrs Griffin and parents and staff that helped out.
Cross Country Competition
Fourteen West Melton Primary students were chosen to participate in a Cross Country Competition at Rawmarsh - and they were all fantastic!
We are proud to announce that 11 qualified for the finals too.
