1. A terminal device comprising:
circuitry configured to:
receive a master information block (MIB) from a base station of a wireless telecommunication system, wherein
the base station is configured to transmit the MIB, a first system information block (SIB), and a second (SIB),
the first SIB includes first scheduling information, the second SIB includes second scheduling information, and the first scheduling information and the second scheduling information relate to a timing of at least one additional block of system information, and
the MIB includes an information element indicating that the second SIB is being transmitted from the base station;
decode the MIB;
determine whether the information element included in the MIB indicates that the second SIB is being transmitted from the base station; and
ignore the first SIB and process the second SIB when it is determined that the information element indicates that the second SIB is being transmitted from the base station, wherein the second scheduling information included in the second SIB indicates a time domain window for receiving at least one additional block of system information.
