Reading Explorer 8/12/17

As detailed in this blog, we have been encouraging the children to extend their reading choices. These week's Reading Explorers are:

  • Sadie from Class 2 for having a detailed diary (including the questions she has answered while reading at home)
  • Archie, Hayden and Matilda from Class 4 for their super explanation of genres in their diaries



Books Wanted!

We are currently planning to revamp the school library as a way to encourage more children to read in there for pleasure. If you have any unwanted books at home, we would appreciate the donation. 

Writing for Pleasure - Moz the Monster

What is Writing for Pleasure?

At The Meadows, we put a great deal of emphasis on giving the children a range of stimuli to encourage their imagination and to inform their writing. Each week our lessons build on key elements of writing (VCOP) so that the children can apply these in their weekly Big Write. The children respond well to this structure and across the school have a strong writing stamina. However, we also feel it is important to give the children opportunity to write at leisure about subjects they are actively passionate about.

Class 3 Fundraising: Reading for Pleasure - Thursday 14th December

On Thursday 14th December, the children in Class 3 will be conducting a fundraising day to raise money for Reading for Pleasure books. We will use the money to buy copies of the book that children recommend each month. This will take place during various times of the day to allow everyone to participate. The following activities will be available:

Whole School

Class 1 Reading Workshop

First of all, I would like to thank those parents who attended the workshop this morning. We had a great turn out and I know the children really enjoyed sharing their reading with you. For those who were unable to attend, below you can find some of the information that was given out during the session.

Anti-Bullying - Class 3

For Anti-Bullying week, the children in Class 3 identified the different types of bullying. We discussed how a victim of bullying would think, feel and act. The children gave some very thoughtful responses (especially when it came to how a victim of bullying would feel). All children were able to identify the different types of bulling and give examples. We thought this was especially important as not all acts of bullying 'look the same'. The children were very eager to spot the signs of bullying as a way to help those in the school.

Children In Need

As ever, the children rose to the occassion of raising money by wearing yellow! They were very excited when they came into school this morning and we had several Pudsey's wandering around the school (Mrs Procter included)! Below you can find several photographs from the day:

Reading Explorers - 10/11/17

As detailed in this blog, we have been encouraging the children to extend their reading choices. These week's Reading Explorer is Annabelle from Class 3. Despite being ill, she sent her diary in to be seen because she was so proud of how much reading she had done!
