Hello and Welcome to Broadfield Primary School. We hope that you have had a lovely Summer holiday. It was lovely to see the children, all looking smart in their new school uniforms.

 

Session Times

Morning session: 8.45am – 11.45am. The gates will be opened at 11.40 and closed at 11.55am.

Afternoon session: 12.15pm – 3.15pm.  The gates will be opened from 3.10 until 3.25.

Please ensure you arrive promptly at the start and end of the session. If you arrive late for your child and the gates are locked, your child will be waiting in the office for you.

We are happy for you to bring your child into the classroom to see that they are settled and support them with writing their name. However, I would appreciate that you leave the classroom promptly when asked, to enable the children to begin their learning.

Your child will be put into a group after all the children have started. The group’s names are; Butterflies, Ladybirds and Caterpillars. Please talk to your child about which group they are in and about the exciting things that they have been doing.

 

Attendance and Punctuality

Please ensure that your child is here every day and on time. If your child is going to be absent from school please ring the office.

 

School Uniform


Please ensure your child comes to school with the correct uniform.

BOYS – Grey/Black trousers, Yellow polo shirt, Blue School jumper and Black shoes (not trainers), and black or grey socks.

GIRLS – Grey/Black skirt or trousers, yellow polo shirt and black flat shoes (no trainers or heels), and black or grey socks.

Please ensure you put your child’s name in all items of clothing, as this helps us to return items which get lost.

 

PE

PE day is Monday. Children will not need a kit for PE as they will just remove jumpers, socks and shoes.

Jewellery should not be worn in school apart from one pair of small stud earrings and a watch.

NO jewellery can be worn for PE.

 

Topics

This terms topic is called ‘All about me’. We will look at our own ‘Identities’; talking about how we are the same and different from our friends.

In numeracy we will be doing lots of counting and looking at what the numbers from 0 – 10 look like.  We will be looking at 2d shapes and talking about the different features of them.

In literacy we will be listening to stories and talking about them. We will be learning how to listen carefully to each other.  When the children arrive in the morning they will be writing their names. The children are going to be trying to write them with ‘dots’ to help them.

 

Reading

We will be sending  library books home soon. Please enjoy sharing these books with your children.

Please try and spend a few minutes every day reading to your child. Encourage them to talk about what is happening in the pictures as well as listening to the words.

Library books will be changed on a Thursday.
