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 2020

The topic this term is ‘To Market! To Market!’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about local markets and markets all over the world. They will also visit Oswestry market to buy fresh vegetables in preparation for soup making. They will research where fruits and vegetables come from and look at seasonal weather patterns in such places.  They will locate the 4 countries of the UK on a map and will locate the capital cities and google their markets . We will learn about the history of Oswestry market; how it has changed and why. In Music, they will learn songs about markets (Let's go to market... ) and will chant rhymes (To market, to market ...) and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art they will create a sketchbook and practise using the media of print to explore fruit patterns. They will look at famous artists such as Arcimboldo, Marino Petro and Clina Polloni. In Design Technology, the children will explore vegetable soups and will design, make and  evaluate their own soup. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.



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, Ms Pittendreigh, Mrs Cade and Mrs Howell

This week, the children have been designing and making their musical instruments. They thoroughly enjoyed making their instruments and playing them.

Science Investigation- Will the amount of water in the glass affect the sound they make?

Giuseppe Arcimboldo- Today the children looked at Giuseppe's paintings. They then went on to complete two different activities. One activity was to make a face with fruit and vegetable printing and the other activity was to create a face by cutting out different fruit and vegetables.They thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon.
