message from the headteacherNEW DATES FOR 2019 ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON 'UPCOMING EVENTS'.

Welcome back to a brand new term at Oldfield Brow. Please be aware that Friday 'Showing Assemblies' now begin at 2.40pm and not 2.30pm as advised in the list of dates sent home in September. Thank you.
Reception Sun Rays
Welcome to Sunrays.

We hope you enjoyed our assembly on Friday! We certainly enjoyed performing for you all. It was fantastic to see so many of you at the back in the hall! Thank you for supporting us.


Our theme this half term is 'Do You Have a Favourite Story?'

Here are a few reminders you may find helpful:

PE is now on Monday morning and Tuesday/Friday afternoon. We are very pleased to welcome the football coaches from Broadheath Football Club into class. They are here to teach the children some early football skills this half term and Weather permitting, these sessions will be taking place outside. Please send your child to school on Monday morning already dressed in their outdoor kit and carrying their uniform in a named bag to get changed into after the session. THANK YOU! Please make sure your child has a pair of jogging bottoms and jumper/hoodie in their PE kit as the weather is getting steadily colder.

Please send your child to school every day with a warm coat, their book bags, reading folders, reading books, reading records and phonic key ring with them EVERY DAY as there may be times when parent readers are in to support and without a complete wallet your child may miss out on a valuable reading session.


Library Day is on Thursdays. Please try to remember to send your child to school with their library book on this day.


Class fund is £7.50 for this half term.

Please help me keep your little people safe at all times by informing me directly of any after school club arrangements your child may have, or of any changes you make to your normal collection arrangements.


If you have any question, concerns or worries, please speak with Mrs Smith-Burnand, Mrs O'Keefe or myself at any time.

Thank you for all you do to support your child's learning at home and I wish your child every success and happiness for this year ahead.

Miss Brash.


Learning Goals


Mrs Moody will be coming into class every Thursday morning to focus on writing with the class.

The children will be getting used to using the PC's and smartboard at school. They will spend some time playing on the 'busy things' website. This website is fantastic as it covers many areas of learning in the Foundation Stage and the children love it! If you would like your child to access the site whilst at home the login details are:-

Homework
Your child has been given a reading book and their first sets of homework challenges.

Homework is sent home monthly. You will receive the next month's challenges on the first Friday in the month and we will collect your child's homework book on the last Wednesday of each month.

Whichever task you are doing we want you as a family to have fun sharing in your child's learning journey - homework is given to enhance your child's development and give you an insight to the learning activities we are doing in the classroom.

Sometimes the task set is a creative, practical or discussion one and it is entirely up to you which times you and your child choose to record in the book.


Please read with your child each night and comment in the Reading Record book, remember to include other books you may have read at home for bedtime stories or just during quiet times that you have shared with your child.

Reading is all about the variety of experience your child has and developing a love of books at this age.

We will provide you with more information and guidance about how to help your child read and how to support your child's learning at home, at our Phonics Workshop for Parents. Please see our upcoming events for more details.
