We will be focusing on the writing and characters of the Harry Potter books.On Tuesday 28th February children will have the opportunity to watch the film ‘Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone’ in school. The film is rated as a ‘PG’ and therefore we require parental consent for your child to view it.

We have an exciting first week back at Highfield, after half term, as it is Literacy week. During this week, the pupils will be carrying out a range of lessons that incorporate Writing, Reading, Art and Drama activities. As part of Literacy week there are some great opportunities for your child to develop their love for reading.
This will take place on Tuesday 28th February and Wednesday 1st March. Parents are invited to come to the Junior Hall between 3.15 - 4.00 to look at and purchase a range of texts for your children. If you are attending, please try to bring some change with you for when you are purchasing texts. Your child will receive a flyer with details of texts that are available and also a £1.00 book token to use at the fair.
DRESSING UP FOR WORLD BOOK DAY
Thursday 2nd March is World Book day. The pupils are invited to come to school dressed up as a book character of their choice. Please support your child with taking part in this.
