Today I had the pleasure of eating cakes with a group of children who deserve a special award for their continued outstanding efforts with home learning tasks. This is an opportunity to acknowledge that so many of our children have developed excellent learning habits at home. They not only complete set tasks to a very high standard, but do so with a smile and great pride.

Today I attended a service at the Madeley Heath monument to pay respects to all the service men and women who have lost their lives in the Great Wars and the conflicts of more recent years. It was lovely to see so many of our families from The Meadows, who had taken time in their weekend, to join the local community in such a important moment of reflection.
Today was my first tea party for those children who have shown outstanding motivation in their home learning tasks this half term. By invitation only, a group of children came along to enjoy delicious cakes, mocktails and a hot chocolate. We chatted about their routines and what helped them to be so successful with continuing their learning at home.
In our assembly today, I explained to the children that we have now converted to an academy within The Shaw Education Trust. We talked about why we want to be part of a family of schools and work together. The children asked lots of super questions which demonstrate their level of understanding and interest in their school.
You can see the presentation to the children here.
The time has come to say a special goodbye to our year six children.
We all enjoyed watching your play "Mary Poppins". It showed just how talented you all are and how confident you have become. The journey you have been on is remarkable. Many of you took on main characters which 12 months ago, would have seemed impossible.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending a concert organized by Mrs Hollinshead-Bland (Mrs HB) and hosted at St John's Primary School in Keele.
In today's assembly, we looked at the annual tennis championship which commences today. All the children were able to recognize the current men's champion Andy Murray.
Class 3 were able to invite a special man in their lives to join our fathers' day lunch. They were treated to an all day English breakfast, before joining the children in their P.E. lesson. Our P.E. coach had planned a new sport for us to try called softball. It is a junior version of baseball and is very similar to rounders. We divided everyone into two teams and quickly picked up the rules. Everyone developed their skills and was able to make contact with the ball using the bat. The final score was 3 - 1.
Further to last week's assembly where we looked at child friendly manifestos for each of the main political parties, today we looked at the unexpected General Election results with the children.
In our Assembly today we looked into the recent news story of Prince Philip retiring at 97 years of age!
