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.




Summer Term 2021

The topic this term is ‘The Big Build’ and all other work will be based around this. Children will look at maps of the world and will research famous bridges in all of the continents They will look at different countries, their capital cities, rivers and oceans. They will compare the structures and materials used for different    bridges, including aqueducts and viaducts and will be involved in making their own bridges.  They will learn of the different types of bridges and will learn how to identify types by looking at specific features. They will  investigate a range of  bridges and who the architects were behind the designs. In Art, the children will look at  paintings that feature bridges, such as Monet and his famous water lily Impressionist paintings, and be  involved in exploring the artistic techniques of such artists. They will use a range of resources to find out about bridges and people involved with them such as Thomas Telford.  In Music, the children will sing songs relating to bridges and add and explore rhythm by using claves and  percussion instruments.







Here is a useful list of our regular class activities. (Please note that these may change on occasions).
PE: Tuesday + Thursday - 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
