Welcome to Class 1

Autumn Term

 

 I am very pleased to welcome you to Highfield Primary School and to the beginning of your child’s learning journey with us.  In the first few weeks of the term we will be concentrating on settling the children into their new environment, ensuring that they feel happy and safe and are making lots of friends along the way. We will also be establishing routines and embedding our positive behaviour policy (can be viewed on school website) and procedures, including our Ready, Respectful, Safe 

This is me’ is our theme this half term. We will be learning all about ourselves and the people around us, with subtle links to ‘The Greatest Showman!’ 

Helpful things to do:

  • Share books /Read every day;  any genre of interest
  • Practice writing names and forming letters correctly
  • Encourage independence when getting changed.

 

Reminders:

At Highfield we ask for a contribution of £1.00 per week for our School Fund, which would be greatly appreciated. This helps to cover the costs of baking ingredients, extra snacks, playdough and new resources. Each half term we will update you with how the money has been spent. Payment is made via ParentPay and is will be £7 for the first half term.

As a school, we provide a free fruit snack daily so there is no need for snacks to be brought in. Please provide your child with a named water bottle that they can access throughout the day.

Your child does not need a P.E. kit in school until after half term.

Key information:

Tuesday 3rd to Friday 6th children to be collected at 11.30am from the back classroom door.

Monday 9th to Tuesday 10th – children stay for lunch and are to be collected at 1.15pm from the back classroom door.
