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.


Spring Term 2019

The topic this term is ‘Voyages of Discovery’ and all other work will be based around this. Children will study the famous explorers ‘Neil Armstrong’ and ‘Christopher Columbus’. Being a Geography topic, map work will be the focus. The children will learn the World’s continents and oceans and will practise locating them on a world map and globe. They will use the four compass points and coordinates, and the vocabulary associated with these. Children will compare our local area with a non-European country. For music, we will sing, listen to and compose music linked to the topic, such as Holst's The Planets. In Art we will create a sketchbook and record ideas of ‘space’. We will use digital media to create and explore images. In DT the children will be exploring different types of parachutes before designing, making and evaluating their own. ICT will be used across the curriculum but the children will be taught how to research specific information and they will use computers to help them solve problems and manipulate/change photos. To enrich their learning, we will be taking the children to Techniquest in Wrexham.





Here is a useful list of our regular class activities. (Please note that these may change on occasions).
PE: Tuesday - 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. (Our PE slot has changed from a Monday to a Tuesday)

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
