Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

LFPA Firework Event
On behalf of everyone I would like to thank the LFPA for the fantastic firework display they organised last Friday. There was an overwhelming number of spectators from the school and the local community who attended, myself included, and we were treated to a very special evening. The feedback from everyone has been extremely positive. Well done to Mrs O Flynn, Mrs Porter and all of the LFPA volunteers who made sure the event was successful and went off with a bang!

Dairy Dates - Monday 12th - Friday 16th November
This week is national anti bullying week. We will be holding an assembly on this issue and reviewing the anti bullying contract with all pupils. On Friday 16th we have a theatre in education production booked and throughout the week pupils will be participating in sessions  to raise awareness and to promote the contract that all pupils are required to sign.
On Monday our Year 4 pupils will be continuing with their Mary Poppins creative sessions with pupils from Drapers’ Brookside and Mead.
On Tuesday the tag rugby team will be taking part in the May and baker tag ruf=gby tournament. Rev Rich is visiting year 4 classes in the afternoon to start their storytelling project which will result in the pupil retelling the CHristmas story in December.
On Wednesday LAMDA continues in the afternoon.
On Thursday year 4 invite all parent and carers to their stay & learn session. Year 1 are attending Forest schools in the afternoon and the football team are playing against Drapers’ Pyrgo after school.
On Friday we end the week with ‘The B Word’ a theatre in education production about bullying. In the afternoon we are holding out afternoon teddy bear tea party to support Children in Need.  
Please look out on the blog for all of the above stories.

Thursday 15th November - year 4 focus mathematics @ 9.00 am

Children In Need - Friday 16th November
Broadford will be hosting a very special day to raise money for Children In Need this year on Friday 16th November.

This will include:
  • A coin race competition between classes.
  • Cake baking during the week in classes
  • Dress the teacher - each class will dress their teacher out of recycling materials and a picture will be taken of each teacher and put onto Facebook. Whatever teacher gets the most likes wins!
  • A teddy bears afternoon tea (teddy bears are optional).
  • Non-uniform day with a theme.
  • Coin race - over the next week or so can you try to bring in any spare copper coins you have. Let’s see which class wins!
  • Teddy bear’s afternoon tea - The children will be given a timeslot to go to the hall for afternoon tea. Each cake/biscuit will cost between 20-50p and the children can then enjoy their treat with their teddies and friends. Parents are invited to attend the afternoon tea with their children, see the timetable below.
  • Non-uniform day with a theme - The theme is yellow or polka dots - or both! The children can wear their own clothes and jazz them up with polka dots or wear yellow clothing. If you are struggling to find clothing to match the theme a simple idea would be to draw polka dots on a plain t-shirt. If you would like to add Pudsey accessories to your outfit feel free! We ask that you contribute £1 per family to this great cause if your child is in non-uniform and any further donations are welcome.
If you would like to purchase a photograph of your child, the photographs are available to view online now.
Please visit the Carmel Jane website and make sure that you have your child’s unique access code to hand. There are a selection of wonderful packages on offer for you to choose from.
