Children had great fun on Grounds Day
Planting, weeding, scarecrow designing and making, tidying, mini-beast hunting and best of all...glorious sunshine! What a fab grounds day. Well done team Meadlands!
Easter came and it meant one thing for Meadlands... Eggs! Egg designing, egg rolling, egg hunting, egg eating. Eggcellent! Here are some pictures from our class egg rolling competition and of the triumphant finalists...
Check out year 4's fearless Roman legionaries! We loved our Spring term topic about the Romans and especially enjoyed learning about their amazing army and designing and making shields.
On Wednesday, year 3 and 4 had a marvellous day out to see Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre, as a part of our Roald Dahl topic. Our favourite parts were the lazers across the theatre for the chokey, Bruce Bogtrotter's cake scene and song, and Ms Trunchbull doing gymnastics! It was an amazing show and a great day. Thank you to everyone who helped.
On Wednesday 4 November 2015 we went to Kew Gardens in conjunction with our topic on 'Rain Forests'.
Year 4's grounds day on 7 October 2015 was filled with bulb planting, outdoor tidying, mucky wellies, habitat hunting, chickens and conker fights! Who says you can't have fun in the rain?
Year 4 Parakeets had a great Big Bang day for our Rainforest topic! We designed tribal body paint and headdresses then made them and had our faces painted! We also tried rainforest fruits and made fruit kebabs - yum! Our day finished with making a giant rainforest picture with year 3 in the hall, which we then destroyed to show how much of the beautiful Amazon rainforest is cut or burned down each day.
Some more wonderful photos from Thames Young Mariners
Year 4 Thames Young Mariners residential trip on 21 / 22.5.15. A great time was had by all as the pictures clearly show.
On Wednesday 11 March, Year 4 Parakeet Class experienced the magic of the Matilda musical at the Cambridge Theatre. Year 4 are studying "Matilda" as their class novel and it certainly launched their topic with a bang!
Year 4 enjoyed two morning workshops rehearsing to perform 'Macbeth'. The final piece was put together at Hampton Junior school with two further schools also participating. Minna and Joshua were chosen as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth but every child had an important role to play as this was a whole class piece. Who knew we had so many talented actors in Parakeet class?
Year 4 Parakeets hard work for their topic on Romans.
