In Year 2 we have been learning about nocturnal animals. Last week we were lucky enough to have a visit from The English School of Falconry. They brought 4 different owls for us to learn about. The children had lots of fun learning about the different owls and their 3 Super Powers! The children are now going to be writing fact files and reports about owls and other nocturnal animals back in class.
"Hospital to the rescue"
For Anti-Bullying Week the children in Robins class (Year 3) participated by writing story boards, singing along to Melody and Bars song ‘Hopeful’. Followed by auditioning as to who would play the lead roles in the video to make a noise about bullying. The purpose of the video is that no matter where you are you can use your values and help each other to overcome bullying.
Early Years and Year 1 have completed their fantastic performances. The Early Years children showed how much they have grown in confidence since joining us in September with a marvelous rendition of songs from 'It's Winter Time'. Year 1 have also performed brilliantly creating a truly lovely nativity called 'Wiggly Nativity'. Both year groups should be very proud of themselves. Thank you to all the children and staff for all their hard work. Also thank you to all the parents, grandparents, families and governors who attended one of our performances.
Does your child have an additional need? Come and join us for a friendly chat. Share ideas , learn from the experiences of others and enjoy some biscuits/cake. We will be meeting one Monday afternoon each half term.
Hope to see you there.

We have new outdoor panels, in the KS1 playground, to celebrate the Meads Values. Do you like them?
Children from Year 6 were given the opportunity to apply for the new role of Values Ambassador. The children who applied were put through a rigorous selection process - an interview with Mr. Jenkins and Mrs. Pearce was followed by the children pairing up and taking visitors on a tour of the school, explaining what makes The Meads unique and special. Finally, a filmed presentation on 'Why Values are Important to Me' completed the day. Twelve children were chosen - watch out for them in school wearing their 'Values Ambassador' badges. Their role will include showing visitors to the school around, visiting other schools to talk about values and leading activities on our next 'Values Day'.
