Mrs Jones & Mrs Sharratt
Key Stage 1 are very lucky to have been asked to take part in judging books that have been entered in to the Children's Picture Book award 2022. Ali has set us an important job to review six books and then vote for our favourite. We are one of the first schools in Shrewsbury that has been asked to take part. We can't wait to read these wonderful books!
World Book Day 2022
Meadow enjoyed World Book Day this year. We had some of our reading role models in to talk about reading and how important it in their lives. We book swapped and enjoyed some time reading and some pupils completed 'Story Spuds' for our whole school competition.
Year 2 Maths
This week Year 2 have started to look at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Do you know what a vertice is? Your Year 2 pupil in Meadow does!
This week we have been measuring using in centimeters and meters!
Pupils have been starting the look at how to divide into equal groups.
We have been investigating Scratch Jnr Computing software. The pupils have been programming their character to move around the screen giving it particular commands.
It's been an exciting start to the new year! Our Darwin Value this half term is Bouncebackability and to launch this value Mrs Benge set us a task! In today's assembly we read the book 'Rosie Revere Engineer' and this story showed us how Rosie displayed great bouncebackability when engineering her own flying inventions. This afternoon we became engineers and design and made our own paper planes! We needed to show
perseverance, determination and hard work to create and perfect our planes.
Meadow class have received a couple of letters from Father Christmas this week! He has sent us a sack of advent books and in the bag was an elf! We voted for a name and we decide to call him Buddy! Keep an eye on our page for an update of what Buddy get's up to in Meadow Class.
Year 2 are busy learning their new Song of Sounds actions. This is the stage 3 song and you can find it on you tube if you would like to practice with your children at home.
This half term we are exploring our local area. Today we revised the compass points and used them to follow directions. We then looked at aerial maps and created a 'messy map' of our classroom!
Something very mysterious appeared in our playground...
Children have been very excited to predict what they think is 'behind the door'. The have come up with some amazing ideas and have used their knowledge of adjectives and expanded noun phrases to describe it.
Frankie - I think you will see space behind the door! I can see twinkling stars and the bright yellow sun. I can hear rockets zooming and shooting stars. I can feel the hot sun and the lumpy moon.
Meadow class have been keeping the tooth fairy busy today!
Today in PE we talked about how exercise makes us feel. We then checked our pulse before and after exercise to notice the effects exercise had on our body. It was great fun!
Everyone enjoyed starting their maths this week. We started by sorting different objects and looking at place value to determine how many tens and ones there are in a number.
Every Friday someone in Meadow will bring the Reading Suitcase home for the weekend with a book to share with an adult at home. Please make sure the suitcase is back in school on a Monday morning when we will share with the class.
The Darwin Value this term is Changeability! In her assembly, Mrs Benge read us a lovely story called ' The Secret Garden' which was all about change. As part of the launch we were tasked with making some butterflies to contribute to our whole school 'Hall Garden' display. Here are some photo's of us making it. We can't wait to bring everyone's work together and show you the finished display!
Settling into Meadow Class
We had a lovely first two days in Meadow getting to know the classroom and starting our new routines.
