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 2020

The children will have a daily one hour Read, Write, Inc. session and will be grouped according to    ability. During each session, the children will review all the letters and sounds learnt previously and will then be introduced to a new sound. They will learn the sound alongside a phrase (e.g. oa as in ‘goat in a boat’). They will practise writing the sound and will be given lots of practise to ‘sound talk’ a range of words focussed on the new sound learnt that day (f-l-oa-t). They will practise spelling words with the same sound/ spelling pattern and these will be sent home as part of  homework. Each week the children will work with a partner to read a fiction book; this will take place during the Read, Write, Inc. hour. Every 4 to 6 weeks, the children will be re-grouped depending on their needs, whether it be reading fluency, phonological awareness or writing. Most writing tasks will be linked to the book they have been reading during the session. The children will also have a weekly handwriting lesson.





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. 

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 stamp! If they receive 6 stamps in their homelink book, they receive a pass. This means they can choose an activity that they would like to do. There are lots of activities that they can choose from i.e. bringing in their own toy, taking a piece of work to the Head teacher, playing games on the computer at lunch time etc.


Many Thanks

Mrs Peebles, Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Burrage and Mrs Trow
