Christmas Dinner

Dear Parents and Carers,

Christmas dinner for all children will be on Wednesday 18th December. If your child goes home for dinners or has sandwiches and would like to stay for a dinner, please inform the school office by Friday 13th December. If your child already has school meals, then you do not need to inform us.

If your child is in Years 3 to 6 the charge for the meal will be £2.25, this will need to be paid before your child has the meal. Please log onto eduspot.co.uk to top your child’s account. If you do not have a password, then please contact the school office. If your child is in Reception to Year 2, there is no charge for the meal.

It will be a lovely festive occasion and we would love your child to join us for a tasty Christmas dinner.

PE Vision 2019/2020

Heathfield Primary School Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity

Vision 2019/20

Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport, and be Healthy, Happy and Active.

Through good physical education (PE), whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We listen to our children’s wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs. We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes.

We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education, school sport and physical activity allows all children to have the skills and mind-set to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond.

We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being. We have strong links with local sports clubs and partnerships within our community to ensure the children and families receive the support and knowledge they need.

READ-A-THON

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 greater love for books.

 

 

 

In the first week of December, Heathfield will be holding, 

“A Non-fiction November – sponsored READ-A-THON competition”.  

This is the perfect opportunity for your children to read as many non-fiction books as they can in a set time at school.

The sponsor form is attached at the back of this letter and it would be so great if you, family and friends were to encourage the children to read as many books as they could during the competition.

Class teachers will share further information of exactly when the read-a-thon will be held – for each class - but in the meantime, if you could get the children to get as many sponsors as possible – that would be great!

All sponsor money raised will be used to further improve your children’s reading opportunities in the classrooms and in our wonderful Heathfield School Library.

We anticipate your continued support for the children and Heathfield School.

Thank you.

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

Yvette Fielding Visit to Heathfield

We are very excited that we will be welcoming Yvette Fielding into our school on Tuesday 19th November 2019. Yvette is an ex Blue Peter presenter, a broadcaster of the worldwide show ‘Most haunted’ and author of ‘Archie the Ghost Hunter and the Rising’. 

Yvette Fielding’s first novel was only published in September 2019! We are very lucky to be visited as part of her book tour.

Book reviews include: ‘Surprising and suspenseful, gripping and intriguing! Highly recommended – 5 star!’ from a blogger and author. Reviews also say, ‘The book is very dramatic with scenes that have you on the edge of your seat and biting your nails. And the scenes of love and happiness too. This story is full of imagination and wonder and I think the author did well executing the final scenes so well. Writing style is perfect for the younger generation but for us adults too who like a nice easy read and a story we can get lost in. And I’m warning you all... you won’t be able to put this down!!!’

Yvette will be working with children in Years 4, 5 and 6, running the following workshops:

Year 6 -Reading session where Yvette will read an extract of her book to the pupils followed by a Q&A session 

Year 5 - A writing exercise where pupils will get into pairs/threes and have a spoken conversation with one playing the role of an interviewer and one in the role of Archie. They will be able to practise turn taking, focused questioning and formal responses to questions. They will then be given the chance to transfer the conversation to paper, where they will then be able to insert the visual aspects of a newspaper article into their work.

Year  4 - A role play session where pupils will be given the opportunity to dress up like the different characters, and re-enact the events which they have previously read with Yvette, exploring their own interpretations of the extract and how characters may have acted and what they may have done.

Children will have the opportunity to purchase her new book, either signed or unsigned, on the day of Yvette’s visit. If you would like your child to purchase a book on the day, please complete the order from overleaf and return to the school office with the cash payment.

We can’t wait to share lots of photographs of the visit with you!
