Southfields Primary School

Mrs Gibbins

Welcome to another year at Southfields! We hope you have had a wonderful summer holiday and have made lots of lovely memories. We are so excited to be starting another year full of exciting learning opportunities. We look forward to meeting you all and working with you throughout the year. Home learning and support will be an integral role in your child’s learning. We will be introducing the home learning gradually throughout this term and will keep you updated through class Dojo. There will also be a variety of online resources for your child to use at home. Class Dojo invites will be coming home and it is important you connect with your class teacher for updates on your child’s behaviour, daily information and your child’s day at school. A key priority will be the relationships between teachers and parents to ensure that the children are fully supported at home and at school. Communication is a crucial part of this process so please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher or year leader.

Travelling through British History

Time Travellers, are you ready? We are going on an adventure that will take us back in time to see The Great Fire of London, The First Flight and The Sinking of the Titanic. We will be fire fighting, flying and sailing. How have these events changed Britain over time and how have they affected people’s lives. We will be getting creative to learn through model making, reporting  and story-telling. We look forward to joining you boat building, building your own houses and working with the fire brigade to fight the fire on Southfields Lane! Come prepared for the most exciting journey in Britain’s timeline.
