Helpful resources to download
The induction presentation below introduces you to the adults working in school, the classroom environment and the school day. We hope that you will enjoy meeting Louis, too, by sharing our Louis book with your child! He takes us through a school day and shows children what they will see and do when they arrive at The Meadows. The other resources make up our induction pack, and you can download them below.
Our Famous Foundation Stage!
The Meadows featured on Alistair Bryce-Clegg's #abcdoes Instagram page recently. Alistair is an international early years consultant, author and blogger, and we are proud to have the opportunity to share our work with a huge audience!
'Our curriculum in the early years is based on learning through play and using the principles of objective-led planning. We create exciting environments and themes based on the children's questions, interests and next steps. We are very excited to be taking over the ABCDoes Instagram feed for #TakeoverTuesday and sharing with you some of the exciting things we get up to...'
