What’s On

Parents and Families, what’s on?

At Dean Field Community Primary School we work really hard to involve you in everything we do. All of our class events and involvement information is accessible on your child’s class page and via Seesaw.

This year, we are hoping to get our coffee mornings up and running again, as soon as it is safe to do so we will let you know. However, until then we will still be posting useful information and links to workshops on healthy lunchboxes, supporting sleep routines at home and oral hygiene for children on Seesaw. We so look forward to seeing you all in school again for a catch-up!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our previous Parent Weeks. They were a great turn out and lots of children, parents, family members and friends had lots of fun learning about what we do at Dean Field. This year we are hoping to return to those! We are hoping we may be able to invite you in in the Autumn term, however, this is on the basis that it is safe and permitted by the government guidance. If we are unable to host Parent Week like we usually do, we will still be engaging with you virtually on Seesaw.

As a reminder, previous years included:

  • Art workshop
  • ICT and E-Safety workshop
  • Early Reading and Maths Learning Walk
  • Phonics Workshop & Story Cafe
  • Maths Workshop
  • Movement & Games
  • Topic Learning Walk
  • Bulb Planting Workshop
  • Coffee Morning: to devise a lunchbox policy together

We so look forward to being able to host these again soon! Some of the workshops listed above and below we are turning into competitions/informative presentations via Seesaw so you can still get involved at home and share your learning and experiences with us still.

Alongside sport’s day and typical school activities, we also regularly organise fun events which you can attend with your child to complete workshops and activities. Luckily we are still able to provide you with our fun and engaging Family Learning experiences! Below, is what is on offer this academic year. If you’d like to take part then please keep an eye out for the information letter to reply to closer to the date of the event. There may be other events taking place which are yet to be confirmed, we will update you via letters and Seesaw with this information. Unfortunately, sometimes events cannot take place for certain reasons. If this happens we will inform you of the changes and do our best to accommodate the workshops for you.

Last year these were done via videos online and packs collected from school. We are hoping to return to hosting Family Learning Events at Dean Field but more information will follow. Either way these will are returning and will be accessible virtually and at home or in school for you to join in with your child/ren. All the resources to take part in the workshops will be provided after you sign up. More information closer to the dates will be sent out to you.
