Railway Children Charity


As part of our work with the Railway Children charity, we have been thinking about what we would like to be when we grow up. We discussed different occupations, watched a video about a boy who dreamed about working with animals and tried on outfits. Please enjoy looking at our photographs. We look forward to seeing what the children come dressed as on Friday. 


Open Afternoon

Reception children have brought home an invitation today. Mellors are coming into school on Friday morning to bake. The children would like to invite parents into our class to share our Christmas treats. So get into the festive spirit and come along on Friday 4th December from 2o'clock. 

Poppy Day

Last Wednesday Class1 wore poppies and joined in a minute silence at 11.00 to remember the soldiers who fought in the war and who help us.

This week we have been learning about the Hindu festival of lights – Diwali. We have learned about the story of Rama and Sita, drawn Mehndi patterns and created our own Rangoli patterns using chalk. Please enjoy looking at our amazing patterns.

From Farm to Fork

We have had visitors, Danielle and Stella from Mellors in reception.The children were very welcoming with their lovely manners. They were eager to answer questions about their favourite school dinners and willing to try new food. Danielle was very impressed that the children enjoy healthy food throughout the school day and were knowledgeable about healthy eating

Fun In The Mud Kitchen

We had lots of fun on Friday afternoon in our new mud kitchen. We made mud pies, soup and sauce from natural autumn materials! With a little help we wrote menus. We also sorted and counted our ingredients.


Party Time

Today Class 1 and Class 2 had their end of term party. We enjoyed playing party games and especially enjoyed eating all of the party food. Please enjoy looking at some of our photos. 


Beach Day

Today Class 1 and Class 2 have enjoyed a fun filled beach themed day. The children have taken part in a variety of activities including painting a beach scene, making puppets and a cup and ball game and also playing traditional seaside games such as the coconut shy, hook a duck and hoopla. We also made super sandcastles decorated with our own flags and shells.

For lunch we had fish and chips served in chip trays with wooden forks. As an extra treat in the afternoon, we had a 99 from the ice cream van.

Class 1 and 2 Anti bullying week

Last week at the Meadows it was anti bullying week. Classes 1 and 2 looked at our new school anti bullying policy. We discussed the school definition of bullying and our acronym STOP to help us remember that bullying is hurting others (emotionally or physically)  - Several Times On Purpose. During the week, we used two key texts; Is it because? by Tony Ross and Something Else by Kathryn Cave. These were used to develop the children’s understanding of types of bullying, its effects and what to do if they felt that they or someone else was being bullied.
