Welcome to Birchfield Primary School
We are a thriving school with an excellent academic record and a reputation for providing the best in education. The real feel of a school can only be discovered by visiting and seeing it in action, and this you are welcome to do at any time.
Citizens of the Week
Citizens of the Year 2017/18
Cultures Week 2018
To celebrate the start of the World Cup, we spent the week of 11th-15th June exploring some of the countries involved in the Cup. Children in KS2 travelled to different classroom countries such as Spain, Russia and Turkey and spent their afternoon tasting food and creating art work! KS1 also enjoyed activities such as making Greek hats and trying Mexican food.
Children tried new things and developed their cultural awareness, and the week was a great success! Take a look at some of our pictures!
World Book Day 2018
Have a look at some of the photographs from our Hansel and Gretel themed World Book Day. We had our "dressing-up" day on Friday 23rd March 2018 (postponed due to the severe weather at the beginning of the month) and we had a full week exploring the story of Hansel and Gretel during the week beginning 26th February. During this week, each class concentrated on a particular writing genre and applied the story of Hansel and Gretel. The theme proved to be highly successful in gaining the children's interest and imagination and by the end of the week we had some wonderful diary entries, letters, character descriptions, stories from different perspectives and explanation texts.
A big THANK YOU to all the parents and carers who supported their child/children when putting together the elaborate and amazing costumes. The pupils looked great!
London Trip 2018
As part of work celebrating 'British Values' a select group of Y5's were lucky enough to spend a day in London with children from the other 4 'Discovery' Schools. This took in 'The London Eye', a cruise down the Thames and then an escorted tour round Westminster. The children went into the House of Lords and the House of Commons where they learned of the history of British democracy and the workings of Parliament. It was an absolutely brilliant (if long) day that they will never forget. Who knows? Maybe the next time they visit it will be as an MP!
Young Voices 2017
Yet again, all the children had an amazing experience at the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena.
Discovery Partnership Event for Key Stage 1
The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear
Some children from Year 1 and Year 2 were joined by pupils from Gildersome, Drighlington, St Francis and Seven Hills primary schools to enjoy a morning of creative poetry. The result was a lovely performance from all the children involved.
Literacy Week - Alice in Wonderland
The children have really enjoyed dressing up as a character from Alice in Wonderland and they loved the mysterious rabbit hole that appeared, especially when they had to go through it for our character parade!
