The Meadows 3/2/14

Another Week....

Another week has flown by and so much has continued to happen....

Friday was spent learning about Chinese New Year. The children learnt how to write their names in Chinese, built a dragon, wrote poetry, made spring rolls as well as learning the order of the animals associated with the story of Chinese New Year....Great fun was had by all.

The children have also been in the playground making the most of the sunny weather we have had this week!


Dragonflies have been busy last week looking at cars. They have used their knowledge to build their own cardboard cars. This week they will be working on car parts and how to use various parts of the car within their daily work cycle.

They also managed to sneak enough time in to build a fantastic castle !!


Anna's class last week have been looking at "Measure". This has included weighing ingredients to make some lovely ice cream !!

Chris's class have been learning about time looking at both analogue and digital clocks. They will be progressing their knowledge to look at telling the time from a Roman Numeral clock face.


Fireflies have been working hard learning their lines from Macbeth ready for next week's performance in class.

Great lesson and Assembly

This weeks Great Lesson was about "Creation Stories" The children have been asked to write their own creation story to complete their work.

This can even be done at home - or maybe in After School !

Assembly this week was all about friendship - Ask your child about the film that was shown??

Odds and Ends....

End of term assembly will be next Friday 14th Feb at 3pm. There will be no After School on that day. We will then return to school after half term on Tuesday 25th February as all the teachers are away on a training day on the Monday.

The allotment is still going well with year 1 and 2 visiting last Friday to finish the edging. We have now been given lots of seeds from a local company to plant when the weather is a little warmer!
