School Learning Grids, online lessons and Seesaw daily challenges available on 'Home Learning' pages.

Seesaw Home Learning

Seesaw is an online learning platform that enables children to complete set activities each day, upload their learning and respond to messages from staff. Access codes have been sent home via email, and the system will be up and running from 8th June. We will still share our learning grids on the website, but we hope that this new system will be helpful and easy to use. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions or experience any difficulties.

Returning to School

Parents and carers of children returning to school during the summer term may wish to use our video to help them to prepare. 

Coronavirus Update

We have created 'Home Learning' pages in each of our key stage sections of the website. You can access them by clicking on 'Classes and Learning'. Each one contains a learning grid of suggested activities, helpful documents and many links to useful websites. Seesaw - an online learning platform is being used to share daily content and to provide opportunities for children to share work and communicate with teachers. Oak National Academy has been established to provide children across the UK with daily lessons in all curricular subjects. BBC Bitesize also offers daily lessons across the curriculum. Both of these are accessible using links on the 'Home Learning' pages. We have also created a daily timetable outline that you may wish to use to provide a daily structure. We hope that you will enjoy your learning at home until we can all be together again!

Our School Values

We focus on one of our school values each term, and take time to think about how we can show this value in our work and play. We also complete challenges at home, and this helps us to share our values with our families. March's value is 'humility.' We receive awards in assemblies when we have demonstrated our values. 

Our Famous Foundation Stage!

During this school year, The Meadows featured on Alistair Bryce-Clegg's #abcdoes Instagram page. 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...'

Authentic Outcome at The Chalkboard Tearoom

In Years 5 and 6, our learning about the origins of chocolate culminated in each class designing and producing a biscuit to a set of criteria, in response to a challenge set by The Chalkboard Team Room and Bistro in Peterborough. Teams from each class worked together to research ingredients, flavours and costs, before presenting the finished items to the restaurant owner. The most successful entries will be baked by chefs and served to real customers! We enjoyed learning how to work together successfully for this project.

Authentic Outcome at The Collection Museum

In Years 3 and 4, we worked together to produce a brochure on Lincoln's history, which we launched and displayed at The Collection museum in December 2019. We have been able to share our writing with an audience and look forward to feedback from visitors. We hope that they will find our work helpful!
