Primary Science Quality Mark - Gilt Award

We are very proud to announce that The Meadows has achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark Gilt Award, which recognises excellence in teaching and learning within the science curriculum. Well done, everybody!

Family Learning 

Last term, family learning sessions in Reception have been well supported and we have enjoyed opportunities to work together. Recently, we have focused on mark-making and early writing; the next sessions will focus on developing reading skills. We would love to see you at a future session if you have not attended yet!

Reading at The Meadows

At The Meadows, we aim to inspire a love of reading in all children and work hard to help them to develop their skills and confidence. We have planned our reading curriculum with this in mind, and in the 'Classes and Learning' section of our website, you can find resources and suggestions for supporting reading at home. 

You may find the following website useful. It contains many practical and useful materials and resources, including suggestions of suitable books for specific age groups:

Let's Read!

We love reading at The Meadows! There are many initiatives in place this year to promote positive attitudes and to help all our children to develop confidence, including Reading Breakfasts and a visit from the Travelling Book Fair. We have also relaunched our library and there will be opportunities for parents and carers to sign up for working together sessions. The newsletter contains all the information about our plans for the term ahead.
