ABC Does and #TakeoverTuesday
This term, 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...'

There are many spaces in which to enjoy reading at The Meadows. Reading is a key to learning. We use a reading spine throughout school to ensure that all children gain access to a wide range of texts and authors. Our recommended reading lists for each year group can also be found in the curriculum section of our website. Throughout the year, we look forward to welcoming families to our reading breakfasts and workshops, which are all planned to support children's reading development.
The slides from our most recent phonics presentation for families are available here. Please do not hesitate to ask if you missed the workshop and require more information or support. Our SATs presentation for families focused on reading this term. The slides are also available below.
