Our first week at The Meadows

This week, the Reception children have been to school full time every day and they have loved it! They have settled into the full school day so quickly. They have adapted very well to seperating from parents and carers. Well done to the parents too. I know it is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye when our child starts school! We have already begun to learn some letters and sounds, had a try at writing and have been reading books together too.

Stay and Play

We have really enjoyed our Stay and Play sessions here at The Meadows. We have been playing and exploring in our new environment and making new friends. We have got to know our teachers and have met Mrs Procter too. When asked about starting school on Monday this is what we said:


"Oh yes! I can't wait!" - Jamie

"I feel excited!" - Alexis

"I want to play with my friends" - Minnie

"I am going to go in the Mud Kitchen" - Maisie

Maths Family Learning Workshops

This week, we have held a range of Maths Family Learning workshops across the school. The aims of these workshops have been to help family members:

•To recognise the characteristics of a Mathematician.

•To identify the expectations for their child/children in their learning.

•To understand what the RUCSAC method is and how we use it to help pupils create a strategy to solve problems.

•To have a go at different types of problems with their child.
