The Meads Primary School - Luton
We have been learning about the Chinese New Year, the children have explored moving in different ways and negotiating space as Chinese Dragons, weaving and winding in amongst each other.
In Literacy, we have been reading the book called ‘Running Wild’, written by Michael Morpurgo. We have been using thinking questions to predict information about the characters and the plot. Here is an extract from the story.
We created our own raps to demonstrate our understanding of this month's value - Curiosity.
The Meads' Values Ambassadors have now been appointed and have been busy this week selling raffles tickets to the staff to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund's appeal to save the beautiful but critically endangered snow leopard. They have also found time to talk about which school Values are the most important to them personally and why. Here is the video that Mr Bateman has made of their presentations - we hope you enjoy it.
If anyone in Early Years and Year 1 would still like to buy a DVD of the Winter Performance, it is not too late! You can purchase 1 DVD for £3.00 or 2 for £5.00.
Forms are available from the school office. The DVD's will be sent home with your child on Tuesday.
On Friday 9th December year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Mike Harwin for our topic wow day. The children had the opportunity to learn about Fire safety and toast smores on a bonfire. All of the children had a fantastic day and enjoyed eating the marshmallows! The children have also been very lucky this week to have a visit from The Fire Service.
There was much excitement in the small hall this morning as children were able to have breakfast with Santa. All the children tucked in to crumpets, croissants or toast and enjoyed meeting him and collecting their present. Please have a look through some of our photos below.
There are only a handful of tickets left for Thursday morning available from the Family Room.
December's value is Patience. Hedgehog Class were set a challenge to test their Patience. All of the children had a decision to make, they could either eat one big chocolate button or wait five minutes and eat two. Watch the video and see who gave in and who succeeded in the Patience challenge!

Last Wednesday we took 4 children to the annual Luton Veg Fest for the first time. As you may have noticed the area outside the large hall has, over the summer months, been full of fruit and vegetables which the children have loved growing and looking after. This hard work culminated in a festival with lots of other schools to celebrate our successes.

As we approach the end of term I am finally able to share some good news with you all. For some weeks now, we have had to keep to ourselves, the project which you will have undoubtedly noticed being installed on the Key Stage 1 & 2 fields. Some time ago we submitted a bid to Awards for All, the lottery funded charity that gives money to worthy causes, for funding to extend our playground apparatus. We were subsequently awarded £10,000 towards doing so, which, together with a further £2,000 provided by our brilliant PTA, has enabled us to pay for the additional equipment you can see on our playgrounds.
