Welcome to a new term and a brand new school year!

Our Playground Zones - Autumn 2020

Take a look at our four playground zones! We have produced this video to show you what break times look like during the autumn term. Children are very much enjoying being together again!

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.

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. September's value is 'positivity.' 

Values also feature in some of our assemblies, which will take place in classes during the Autumn Term. 

Seesaw Home Learning

Seesaw is an online learning platform that enables children to complete set activities, upload their learning and respond to messages from staff. The system was used effectively during lockdown, and it will be updated for the new academic year. If remote learning is required once again in the event of a partial or total school closure, lessons and resources will be uploaded and shared using Seesaw. Children will be encouraged to use Seesaw also for homework activities during the autumn term. If you have any questions, or require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us at school.

Remote Learning Update

'Home Learning' pages in each of our key stage sections of the website were created during the recent school closures. You can still 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 has been used to share daily content and to provide opportunities for children to share work and communicate with teachers. It will be used once again in the event of any future closures. Oak National Academy gives families across the UK with daily lessons in all curricular subjects. BBC Bitesize also offers lessons across the curriculum. Both of these are accessible using links on the 'Home Learning' pages.

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...'
