Feedback Friday

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.

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

Santa at Hawkstone Park

Classes 1 and 2 have had a wonderful trip today to see Santa in his Grotto at Hawkstone Park. After a fun Land Rover trip to reach the caves, we quietly walked over the troll's bridge making sure we didn't wake him! Inside the caves, they were beautifully decorated with festive trees, lights and magical scenery and we had to search through them looking for Santa. Along the way, we met some elves who had games for us to play  like 'Hook a pudding' and skittles and then the children climbed through a giant Advent Calendar and were surprised to find a slide inside it!

Our first half term at The Meadows

The boys and girls have all settled in very well and are already working very hard. We are having lots of fun as we learn through our exploration and play. We are actively completing our learning tasks and are thinking creatively. We have been learning early maths and phonics every day. All of the children are enjoying learning to read on Bug Club.
