If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything, please feel free to write a comment in the home link book or pop into school and speak to any of us. Over the year, we will be using this webpage to post lots of useful and important information, such as home learning, useful websites and photos.


Autumn 2018

The topic this term is ‘Fire! Fire! Fire!’ Children will look at the events that surrounded the fire in London. They will use a variety of resources (diary extracts, pictures, computer images, information books etc) to learn about the fire. There will be a focus on Samuel Pepys’ diary and how the fire spread. The children will learn about the dangers of fire and general fire safety. The Fire Service will visit to talk to the children about the dangers of fire and how to keep safe. In Music they will learn a variety of songs linked to ‘fire’, including singing in a ‘two part round’. They will have the opportunity to experiment and perform with tuned and untuned instruments to create ‘fiery’ sounds. In Art the children will create a sketch book to record and explore the theme of fire. They will investigate 3D structures and will design, make and evaluate a Tudor house. This term the children will visit a ‘real life’ bakery where they will have opportunity to see the process of bread being baked. They will use this experience to make their own bread




Here is a useful list of our regular class activities. (Please note that these may change on occasions).
PEMonday - All children need to make sure they have their P.E kit in school for this day. Please make sure that all of their P.E kit is labelled.

Swimming: Autumn Term only (Wednesday) - All children need to make sure they bring in their swimming kit for this day. They will need a navy swimming costume/ trunks and a towel. Again, please make sure that all of their swimming kit is labelled.

Homework: We always give out new homework on a Friday. To give us the opportunity to mark and look at their homework. We ask that all children need to hand in their homework by the following Thursday at the latest.

Spelling Test: Thursday - Children will be given 10 spellings to learn every week. They will follow the LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method to help them learn their spellings.


Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read.

Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week their name will go into a chance box. They will then be in for a chance of winning a Meadows School bookmark and a pencil!


Forest School - The children will need to bring warm clothes, waterproof coats, scarves, gloves, hats and wellies to wear in the forest. The children will be split into two groups.

Many Thanks

Miss Preston, Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Williams and Mrs Logsdail
