Family Learning 

This 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!

World Kindness Day

We enjoyed celebrating World Kindness Day by surprising people in our community with gifts! We also took part in World Hello Day, when we wrote postcards tand delivered them to our neighbours and friends. Our aim is always for The Meadows to be a kind and welcoming place for everyone!

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:

Year 6 SATs 

We enjoyed an opportunity to meet with Year 6 families and share strategies for supporting our children in their learning during Year 6. The presentation can be accessed below and if you missed this opportunity, you will find resources and information by clicking on the link. 

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. 

Parent Hub

If you would like to keep up to date with school information, receive reminders about important events and even download letters sent home, you can do all this by downloading the Parent Hub app on your mobile phone. By following the simple registration process, you will be able to follow your child's class and receive alerts every time a message is shared. 

Many families are already finding that Parent Hub is a useful way of staying in touch!
