Weekly Newsletters - Friday 12th May, 2023

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Part 1 Broadford News

End of Key Stage Statutory Assessments

Well done to all of the pupils in year 6 who completed their end of year 6 assessments this week. We are very proud of you as you all demonstrated huge amounts of commitment and tried your very best throughout the whole week, all with an amazingly positive attitude. Thank you to the year 6 team who have been relentless in preparing the pupils. I know they have some exciting projects for the rest of the term which I am certain the pupils are going to love! Pupils are being treated to a special day out on Monday which I know they are all going to love.

Summer Fete
Save the date - we are hosting our summer fete on Saturday 8th July. We hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Rainbow Tombola Day
On Friday 9th June we are holding a non school uniform day at Broadford in support of the ‘Rainbow Tombola’ and for prizes at the summer fete. Pupils can come to school wearing their own clothes, but they must wear school shoes or trainers. Instead of the normal procedure of bringing in some money, on this occasion we are asking pupils to bring in an item to donate to the fete in exchange for wearing non school uniform.
As it is a ‘Rainbow Tombola’ and for prizes we need new items which are of course in the colours of the rainbow. We have given each year group a specific colour to make sure that we have a spectrum of colours for our tombola. Please see the list below to see what colour your child’s year group is.

EYFS - Orange
Year 1 - Green
Year 2 - Pink
Year 3 - Purple
Year 4 - Red
Year 5 - Yellow
Year 6 - Blue

All you and your child need to do is select a new item in the specific colour for their year group and bring it into school on the non school uniform day on Friday 9th June. Then come along to the summer fete and play the ‘Rainbow Tombola’ to win a prize every time or play some of the games on offer to collect tickets to exchange for a prize. We can’t wait to see you all there.
