Welcome back

We have had a great first week back after the easter break. We have made the most the Spring sunshine and have been enjoying outdoor maths. We have drawn our own hopscotched and been adding by counting on. We have listened to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and have made our own story maps. We have also enjoyed learning in our new role play area The Garden Centre. Next week we will be gardening!

Christmas week Feedback Friday

Merry Christmas everybody!

We have had a lovely  week here at school. We have been learning festive phonics and Christmas counting! We have listened to the Christian story of the Nativity and performed our Christmas song for the Meadows Christmas video. It has been a different kind of Christmas and we have certainly had to think creatively to make this Christmas extra special for our children, but we have! The children have as always been amazing and had lots of fun!

Good morning all!

It is beginning to look alot like Christmas! We have our school Christmas tree up, which was a  magical moment as Class 1 walked past for the first time.

The children have been working so hard again. We have been counting and using bigger numbers and practising using our phonics to read and write.

Good morning all,

Another lovely busy week in Class 1. Thank you everyone for attending our parental consultations via Teams. I felt that it all went well and was a positive experience! 

This week we have been practising blending and segmenting with our phase 2 sounds and have enjoyed reading our Rocket Phonic books which you can now access at home too. This practice will help to build confidence with the text and develop fluency. Thank you for parent contributions in the reading diaries. It really informs us about how the children are applying their skills at home.

It is surprising how quickly Friday comes around each week! We have had another brilliant busy week in Class 1.

In maths this week, we have been learning about time, sequencing our school day and playing What time is it Mr Wolf in which we have been looking at o'clocks!

Hello everybody.

Friday already! In reception, we have had a very busy week. We have been learning new sounds f ff l ll ss and have been using all of our sounds to blend in our reading and segmenting to spell and write words. We are getting very good now! We have been finding 1 less and also taking away with our counters and cubes.

Good morning everyone,

As we enter a second lockdown and things are very different and quite stressful for us grown ups, it is a pleasure to work with the children in Reception. It is such a happy, busy and vibrant place to be. All of the children have settled back in very well after our half term break. 

This week we have been practising our counting and comparing numbers using the five frames, cubes and Numicon. We have been completing our maths journals and being curious like our maths character Ash!

Good morning everybody.

We have enjoyed another busy week in Class 1! The children are really settling into routine now. It is lovely to see them all come into school with a smile, put away their own belongings and start their early work with very few reminders!

Every Friday, Reception would like to show you what we have been learning. This week we have been very busy again! We have been reading using our phonics. We have had some new pocket books in school and we enjoyed saying our sounds and blending the sounds together to read. 


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.
