Last week, we had a fun-filled week with one mission - to write for a purpose. Across school, we all chose a different purpose to write for: Year 1 had a poetry competition; Y2 wrote to CBeebies; Y3 made a video advert for our school; Year 4 wrote to the local council about littering in the local area; Year 5 created our very own school magazine called ‘The Highfield Headliner’ and Year 6 wrote to Liam Byrne MP about traffic, parking and road safety. We also had a focus text per year group, which underpinned our World Book Day learning. Children and staff had the option of coming in dressed as their favourite character from a book, which was enjoyable for all. We also had the opportunity to share a story where we chose a story to be read to us based on the front cover. We also had a press conference in Y5, a Mad Hatter’s Tea party in Y3 and ‘Pirate Day’ in Reception amongst other things. Everyone in school had a great week and we were fully immersed in learning about all things Literacy.
On Monday 18th March 2019 it will be Comic Relief Red Nose Day. To celebrate and raise money, we would like all pupils to come into school wearing something red. We are asking children to bring in a £1 coin which their class teacher will then collect.
We hope to have lots of fun and laughter on this day.
Thank you for your continued support.

Wow! Reception are super excited for all of the wonderful experiences we will be engaging in this Spring. This term kicked off with a fun packed ‘literacy week’ where the children immersed themselves in the text ‘Pirates Love Underpants’. The whole unit was transformed into a pirate paradise, where we made props to help us on our pirate quests; made huge treasure maps and set sail in our ships.
We even dressed up on Thursday for World Book Day and took part in a huge treasure hunt obstacle course. It was such fun! Next week we will be looking at the Special Olympics, and engaging in lots of sporting related learning! There is a maths workshop for parents, where the children will work with their parents on a variety of different maths activities that can be easily made at home.
All of this is all before this term;s WOW experience: Science Galore! We will be carrying out lots of simple experiments aimed to create awe and wonder and generating fantastic discussions about the world around us.
