Weekly Newsletter - Friday 23rd February

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been a fantastic and hectic first week in school. I am sure the children have enjoyed mystery writing, Harry Potter quizzes and cycling sessions.  The pupils have also been working very hard which you will see from the extensive list of certificates and awards below. Well done and thank you to all staff and pupils who make Broadford such an amazing place to learn.                                                     
Diary Dates
On Monday morning our year 5 pupils will enjoy a visit from the author Cliff McNish and Elm class are swimming in the afternoon.
We have our spring term parent forum on Tuesday 27th at 9 am. Every year group has parent representatives, however any member of the parent community is welcome to come along. On Tuesday afternoon the spinebreakers from pine class are visiting Hilldene library.
On Wednesday 28th we would like to invite all parent and carers of pupils in Sequoia class to their sharing assembly. The children will be sharing their learning and this will be an opportunity to have a look through their books. Year 6 will be visiting the science museum and LAMDA lessons will be taking place in the afternoon and there is a football match at Drapers’ Pyrgo after school.
Thursday 1st March is bookday. Year 1 are taking part in a circus skills workshops and there is a tag rugby match at Drapers’ Brookside in the afternoon. Year 4&5 pupils are being treated to a virtual reality experience and will be visiting the rainforest.
On Friday we warmly invite year 6 parents to the year 6 maths party at 9am.
Look out for all of the above stores on the blog.

Thursday 1st March is world book day. We are going to celebrate the day by asking all pupils to dress as their favourite book character for the day. The children could be Harry, Matilda or Alice and we are looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful ideas that you come up with. There will be prizes for the most imaginative character costumes!
Please be mindful when choosing a costume as the children will still be going outside for play  as usual during the day. Ensure that your child wears their coat over their costume and has on sensible shoes such as their school shoes or trainers.

Parents Consultations  
At the end of the term we will be holding parent consultations when you are invited to come and meet your child’s class teacher to find out how they are progressing this year. This will be an opportunity to discuss the year group passport and how your child is making steps towards meeting end of year expectations.
These events will be held on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March.
