Celebration of Culture Week

Dear Parents,

The week beginning Monday 22nd October we will be celebrating Culture Week at school. This year the theme will be “We all Smile the Same Language”The aim of the week is to explore different culture aspects from around the world through fun and engaging activities and lessons.

The children will learn about different traditions and also look at similarities between the different cultures within our own schools and communities.

The school dinners for Culture Week will be varied and provide opportunity for the children to try foods from different cultures. Please see the back of this letter for the Culture Week menu. If your child usually brings a packed lunch and you would like them to stay for a hot meal during Culture Week please see the staff at the main office.

Non Uniform Day

Monday 22ndOctober will also be a non uniform day for children. We will be encouraging the children to come to school in traditional clothing that represents their culture. There will be a £1 charge.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We will be hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 26thOctober. It would be great if you could help us; you can do this in a number of ways. Firstly you could donate some bought cakes. Secondly, you could bake some cakes or biscuits and send them in on the Friday morning. Finally, you could come along and even bring along other family and friends to sponsor the cause.

Please remember your donations for the Food Bank

Please look out for our newsletter following on from culture week to find out what all the children have been learning.

 

Yours Sincerely

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Dear Parent/Carer,                                                                                                          

 

On Friday 26thOctober, Heathfield School will be hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning with the theme ‘Celebrating Our Cultural Community’. Our last coffee morning was a fantastic success and raised a considerable amount of money to support Macmillan in looking after cancer sufferers and their families. We are hoping with your help to make this year’s event just as successful.

It would be great if you could help us; you can do this in a number of ways. Firstly you could donate some bought cakes. Secondly, you could bake some cakes or biscuits and send them in on the Friday morning. Finally, you could come along and even bring along other family and friends to sponsor the cause.

All cake/ cupcakes/ biscuits contributions and monetary donations are highly appreciated. The funds raised will all be sent to Macmillan.

Many thanks for your support and we look forward to enjoying a cup of coffee with you!

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs S Amir-Baz

ASPFA Boys Football League

ASPFA Boys Football League Heathfield Football Team had started their Aston Primary School Football Assocation League, kicking off with only 1 fixture for the evening agaisnt Chilwell Croft. Heathfield headed into this fixture with no previous experience of playing at King Edwards as well as having a lot of new faces joining the team for this academic year.

Heathfield 0-4 Chilwell Croft

Unfortunately, it didn't go as planned. Chilcroft were a very good footballing side and took their chances. Despite that Heathfield had chances to score also but it wasn't our day. Heathfield played with great team spirit and work ethic and never gave up. Congratulations to Chilwell Croft but also congratulations to the boys who took part and represented their school in a great manner.
