Dear Parents/Carers,

Braunstone Community Primary School is a very special place. Visitors often comment positively on the children’s warm welcome, their enthusiasm and also on staff’s commitment and dedication. We understand the power of education and take very seriously our duty to give your children the best start in life.

Our learning community combines high expectations with quality learning and relationships to ensure that every child achieves a personal best. 

As Headteacher, I am very proud to be a member of this community. We continue to strive for continuous improvements in everything we do. Our commitment is to be the best we can be and to help your children become successful, happy and respectful young people. Their learning and personal development are our driving force. We believe that every child in our school should be treated as if they were our own.

We have changed the curriculum so that it is rigorous, rich, creative, relevant, broad and balanced.  English and Maths are pivotal and are prioritised within each subject area.  We believe that we are well positioned to embrace the expectations in the new National Curriculum.

We provide a nurturing and secure environment for your children. The school’s Governing Body and Inclusion Team are very supportive. Mrs Rushin, (Inclusion Manager) and Mr Brown (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare Leader) work with parents and children for the benefit of all through the work in our Nurture provision and Learning Support Unit (LSU). They can be contacted through the school office. Please ask for them directly. Alternatively, you can contact Mrs Ball, our Deputy Headteacher or myself.

We want our children to have the skills necessary for the future – to be confident and competent members of a modern society.

We look forward to seeing you in school and working in partnership with you.

I want to thank you for your continued support and for trusting us with the privilege of educating your precious children.

Welcome to Braunstone Community Primary School.

Ms Jatinder Mahil

No Pens Wednesday

This Wednesday was No Pens Wednesday! This whole day was devoted to improving our Speaking and Listening skills so even though there was no writing   there was a lot of learning! We completed various activities in Reading, Writing, Maths and Topic and we filmed ourselves! Some specially selected Year 6 children interviewed groups of children at the end of the day to discover what they had been learning about. The aim of the day was to improve our vocabulary, language for thinking and sentence structures. We will be doing another one soon so watch this space!
Year 3 went to Braunstone hall

On no pens Wednesday Class 9 went to Braunstone Park
to visit a secret garden,
and learn about the history of Braunstone Hall.

We used maps to help us find our way around the park.

We learned about what the hall used to be like
and imagined it looking grand and elegant
rather than derelict.

We went into the walled garden
and explored the plants.

Class 8 played The Unfortunately Fortunately game using opposites to think of story sentences.

We used ideas taken from the book
Unfortunaetly by Alan Durant.
No Pens Wednesday
Singing and dancing in EYFS2 Class 2 and 3 had a lot of fun on No Pens Wednesday! We did a special dancing and singing session together.

We are developing our listening skills so that
we can sing together and move in time to the music. 

We stirred up the porridge, zoomed to the moon
and ran away from dinosaurs! 

Magical Maths

On Friday 9th October we were incredibly lucky to be visited by The Maths Detective from Magical Maths.
He challenged Mrs Mukiza to a contest which later proved that he was the greatest mathematician in the world! The Maths Detective wowed us with his ability to predict the total amount of the blocks in a split second!
He did this quicker than Mrs Mukiza and her calculator - wow!
The children were amazed by his speed and accuracy and have been invited to attend the Magical Maths workshops to find out how he did it.
The club will run for 6 weeks at a cost of £41 starting on Wednesday 11th November. 
We look forward to seeing your child attending the after school Magical Maths workshop which will support and enrich their maths lessons.

Everybody's Reading Festival

We welcomed a total of 34 parents to our FS1 reading festival event. They came in to watch an interactive story lead by Miss Illidge (Class teacher) and joined in with a song. They got their new book bags, a reading score card, a reading log and a FREE DVD about Helping their Child to Read. They also got to choose 5 books to keep at home forever. The festival was kindly funded by WIT (Whatever It Takes reading initiative).
