This week our School Ambassadors: Christi and Finlay have been set a challenge with a very tight deadline. They received a letter from the Regional Directors of The Shaw Education Trust. It asked that our school contributes to the official SET website. Each school has been asked to produce some information detailing what their school is like from a pupil's point of view.

As part of our "Writing for Pleasure", stimulus which is the current John Lewis advert, I shared with the children some information regarding Elton's John's life, so they could appreciate the meaning of the advert. To begin with they could tell me very few facts, other than he is very famous and is a musician.
At The Meadows our children do show extremely positive learning behaviours. They are truly engaged in their learning, displaying strong intrinsic motivation to succeed. On the playground and around school you can see our motto" Leaning by Caring and Sharing" as a tangible thread which wraps itself around all of our community.
On Thursday the 28th June, we (the school Ambassadors) were invited to participate in a special day for all the schools in our Academy group. We visited Walton Hall Academy, which is a special school in Eccleshall Staffordshire. The purpose of the day was to collaborate with pupils from all across the different schools and to discover more about the Shaw Education charity.
We have been very fortunate to have been able to use the Radio Station resource at Seabridge Primary School
Being part of The Shaw Education Trust allows schools to network with each other and share resources. This enables our pupils to access opportunities which would otherwise not be possible, or would incur significant costs.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of accompanying our swimming team to the gala event. This competition was held at Newcastle under Lyme Independent School.
Congratulations to Mrs B Magee who has been awarded a special award from The Shaw Education Trust for being an "Exceptional Member of the Support Staff”. Mrs Magee is employed as a higher-level teaching assistant and her varied role allows her to work with each and every child here at The Meadows, during the course of the week.
This morning, classes one and two were very lucky to have special visitors of the four legged kind.
Mr Lovatt (one of our parents) and Miss Roper kindly offered to bring along 2 of their lambs from their farm. We met Rosie and Peach.
They are both 3 weeks old and have been hand reared, as they were each one of triplets. Sheep can only raise two lambs at the same time as they only have two teats.
Today in assembly I had the pleasure of awarding every child in class 2 a certificate for their swimming achievements..
Class 2 have been going swimming at Chesterton High School since January. We decided to extend our lessons to 45 minutes, rather than the usual 30 minutes, as we are now receiving additional Sports Premium funding from the DfE.
This week in assembly we looked at The British Value: "Individual Liberty".
It’s easy to buy things without thinking about where they’ve come from. It’s everyone’s responsibility to make sure what we buy has come from a safe and sustainable source.
Fairtrade is a simple yet incredibly important idea – it’s all about giving the people who produce the things you buy a fair price for their work.
