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fails to attend a club on three consecutive occasions without reason or is regularly absent, their place will be withdrawn and awarded to a child on the waiting list.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.

Summer Fete Friday 12th July 2-4pm

Dear parents,

We are so excited to welcome you to join us for the Summer Fete on Friday. Here are just a few reminders about the arrangements.

In order for us to set up the fete, there will be no clubs in the afternoon. All children will need to be collected by parents at 12:15 or 1:15. School will then be closed temporarily while staff set up in both playgrounds and then gates will be opened at 2pm to invite you in. As school staff will be running the event, all parents will be responsible for the supervision of their children during the afternoon. 

If you would like to donate anything and haven’t seen myself or Mrs Sayed yet, please come and chat with us next week. 

The weather forecast looks warm with a small chance of rain. Please ensure children have hats/sun-cream on and a jacket just in case. Who knows what the weather will do! 

I am sure this will be a hugely successful event for our school and look forward to seeing you all there. 

Thanks for your continued support.
