Welcome to Meadow View
Welcome to Meadow View Primary School’s website!
Today we took eight year 5/6 boys and seven year 5/6 boys to take part in their cluster football tournament at Winterhill. Both teams performed magnificently in all areas of the pitch. Both Ben Hardy, who commanded his defence confidently and provided the team with some excellent distribution, and Emily Stanley, who pulled off a number of fantastic saves, were outstanding in goal keeping clean sheets in many of the games. Defenders for the boys were Nathan Lamb, who put his head on the line for the team, Mason Hizam, who gave everything he had in all games and Robin Lacko who got stuck in and battled bravely against some tough opposition. For the girls we had Gabi Harkot, who made some excellent clearances and Jessica Bluer, who brilliantly blocked many shots, stopping all that came there way with many perfectly timed tackles. In midfield for the boys we had Ben Bradley, who scored a wonderful individual goal against Thorpe Hesley, and Oliver Sayles, who played some perfectly timed and weighted passes to his team mates. The girls midfield consisted of Frances Parker, who ran all day long and played some lovely passes to her team mates, and Katie Agger, who was always in the right positions and was never afraid to put a tackle in. The strikers for the boys included Henry Evans, who had some lovely touches and came incredibly close to scoring with a fine turn and shot, and Jake Raynes, who dropped off in to the 'Lionel Messi' role picking up the ball and spreading it around to his other team mates. For the girls we had Lilly Cobley-Greaves, who was fantastic throughout trying her best to get a shot off, and Lucy Raynes, who gave everything she had all the way through the tournament.
The Girls team were extremely unlucky not be making their way through to the finals finishing Second Place in a very close competition. Having remained undefeated throughout the tournament and playing in the game of the day against Thorpe Hesley, with practically every eye at Winterhill keeping a close eye on this crucial game. You did me and Mrs Harkot proud girls and i am sure the same is said for your parents, carers and grandparents that came to watch. Don't worry though as we are in the process of organising more games for you so we can further develop your skills.
The Boys played some great football throughout the competition, however like the girls they came a very close Second Place. With more games for the boys the competition was wide open from start to finish with only a couple of points seperating all teams that took part. The boys went in to the final game against Kimberworth knowing a win would take us through to the finals. Unfortunately this didnt happen and we had to settle for secind place. Mrs Harkot and myself know that you couldn't have put anymore in to the competition and we are proud of you all! Just like the girls dont worry we are in the process of organising more games so we can further develop you as players and as a strong team! Well done to all that participated!
Earlier today Meadow View, who were representing the Winterhill cluster in the Y3/4 Girls football finals, took part in a thrilling tournament at Wath Comprehensive School. Despite the blustery winds, heavy rain and hail stone, the excellent eight gave 100% effort from start to finish providing spectators with some fabulous football. Starting with Leah Mitchell in goal who was outstanding whenever she was called up on pulling off some great saves. Furthermore we had Alice Parkin, Kianna Whiteley and Arooj Ahmed in a solid defence that all teams we played struggled to break down, due to their perfectly timed tackling and commitment to the team. In our star midfield we had Kara Harrison and Candice Chibi who between them created a vast amount of chances with their excellent passing and dribbling for both our strikers , Jodie Elliott and Serena Carter, who managed to find themselves on the score sheet with some fantastic strikes.
In total we played five thrilling games, in these games we managed to win two, draw two and unfortunately lose one. Despite this battling defeat we still managed to come a magnificent Third Place out of the seven schools that turned up. Mrs Witherstone and myself would like to thank all the parents and grandparents that came to support the team at this tournament, despite the horrendous weather conditions and we are certain you are just as proud of them as we are! You did Meadow View proud!
We had some great news today at Meadowview.
Our fantastic year 2 Phoebe Pearson has become a published author.
Her story was selected to be part of a book of stories about Superheroes.
We are very proud of her achievement and this shows the talent we have here at Meadowview
Well done Phoebe!

After school tonight Meadow View entered the cross country cluster tournament. We couldn't be prouder of all of you, you were incredible! We were very successful and managed to get children in the top ten of the different races. Well done to Mariam Bah, Ismatu Bah, Ben Hardy, Bailey Hannaford, Felicjan Harkot and Joshua Eden for getting through to the finals. I hope we haven't missed anyone off because we tried to write the names down, but at times it was hard to see who had made that top ten. A special well done to Alice Parkin and Ben Bradley, who both came first for their races. You are all a credit to our school! Bring on the finals! Miss Hunter and Mr Atherton
