Animal Man Visit- 17/12/2018

WOW Experience

We are offering your child the opportunity to take part in a WOW experience where The Animal Man will be coming into school on­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ Monday 17thDecember.  It is necessary to ask for a voluntary financial contribution of £3.50 if this activity is to take place.

The Animal Man will arrive at 9.15am and will stay for a few hours with the children showing them different animals.  Members of staff from Heathfield School will also be with the children for the duration of the day.

Children will need to wear school uniform.

Please understand that while the school staff in charge of the party will take all reasonable care of the children, they cannot necessarily be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by your child arising during a school activity.

The school is insured against its legal liability to pay compensation should it be held responsible for causing an injury to your child whilst in the care of staff.  The school has not arranged any additional insurance in respect of the visit e.g. personal accident.  Should you be concerned about this area of risk, you are advised to make your own arrangements.

Please complete the consent form attached and return it to your child’s class teacher.  You will need to make payment of your voluntary contribution using the cashless system in the same way you pay for dinner money.  You can make payment online using a debit card or with a barcode from the school office at a pay point in a local shop.

Reply slips must be returned to school and payments made by Wednesday 12th December 2018.

Please be advised- if there are not enough contributions collected, the visit may have to be cancelled.

If you have any concerns, please get in touch with us.

Non-Fiction November

Reading is a fundamental part of our children’s learning and here at Heathfield we are always looking for ways to engage our children in reading for pleasure and encourage a love for books.

Through the remaining weeks of November, Heathfield is holding, “Non-fiction November”.  We will be encouraging your wonderful children to select non-fiction books from the school library, which they can read at home with you, to make it a more enjoyable time.

After they have read the books we would like the children to take part in the ‘Non-fiction November - Home Learning Competition’. The children will be required to do a piece of work linked to the books that they have read and then bring it back to school, so that their class teachers can select a winning entry.

Teachers will be sharing further information, regarding what the children could produce, at some point this week. 

Please encourage your children to take part in this competition and maintain a high level of presentation in all that they produce. 

Thank you all for your continued support.

Happy Reading and Remember, Remember It’s Non-fiction November.
