Part 3: Work Expectations


At Meadlands we teach the cursive handwriting style, as seen in this photo. When children demonstrate that they can consistently and fluently write using a cursive style and maintains consistent letter size they are awarded with a handwriting pen.



At Meadlands, we expect the children to take great pride and care with all their written work. At the start of the year, a maths lesson is dedicated to the reminding the children how to set out their math's work,  so that the layout is consistent across the year group. 

Our expectations around layout is: 

Use of a margin - 2 squares wide

All headings and sub-headings underlined with a ruler 

Any diagrams drawn using a ruler

All maths work completed in pencil, or purple pen for responding to marking or completing reasoning and problem solving work 

A digit per maths square.

Part 4: Blended Learning 


If your child is absent but waiting for a coronavirus test result to return to school or having to self isolate due to symptomatic household members, then they can access school work on their class page right here! Work will be uploaded every Monday morning. Children are expected to follow the timetable and complete the lessons in their Meadlands-at-Home books, returning these to their class teacher, once they are able to return to school.


If the class or school is having to isolate we will be in touch with you regarding how to access the Google Classroom learning.

Parents & carers, if your child is isolating and completing work from home, the following websites can supplement the work we have provided. These are easy to access and navigate and you will find video lessons and video clips which support the learning that the teachers have provided:
