The dates are as follows:

KS1 Tuesday 15th October

Nursery and Reception 16th October

KS2 Thursday 17th October

Please see your child’s teacher in the playground next week (w/c7th) to choose an appointment slot. We look forward to seeing you there.

After School Clubs Autumn Term

Please see our after school club provision for the autumn term at Birchfield School. Please circle the clubs that you wish for your child/ren to attend. As each club has a limited number of spaces available, places will be awarded on a first come first served basis and all after school clubs are free of charge.

Once all of the after school clubs have been fulfilled your child/ren will be placed on the waiting list. If your child/ren fails to attend a club on three consecutive occasions without reason or is regularly absent, their place will be withdrawn and awarded to a child on the waiting list.

Thank you for your support with school sport

Years 3 and 4 Mandarin Lessons

We are very excited to inform you that we are able to offer Mandarin lessons to all the children in years 3 and 4. A Chinese native speaking teacher called Miss He will be working your child this year. She will be rotating around all the classes on a Friday morning and she will be covering a wide curriculum. I have copied the curriculum overleaf so you can have a look at what your child will be learning. If you can support your child to learn more about China, its culture and Mandarin, by working with them at home, that would be wonderful.

I look forward to hearing the children, your family and our staff all speaking Mandarin and being excited about learning a new language.
