The theme this year is: The Ancient Egyptians. On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday we have organised workshops in school to give the children first hand learning experiences about the wonders of Ancient Egypt.

 

All the children are invited to enter a competition to design a pyramid.  This pyramid can be any size, 2D or 3D and made from any material.  Children are encouraged to be as inventive and creative as possible; entries can include drawings, paintings or collages. 

 

Pyramids should be submitted by Thursday 25th May, ready for judging.  We will announce the winners for each class and award prizes in our Assembly on Friday 26th May.  

 

 

Happy creating!

 

Many thanks

Dear Parents/Carers

 

Year 6 Educational Visit to Manchester Museum – Thursday 25th May 2017

 

As part of our Creative Curriculum topic on Ancient Egypt, we have arranged for Year 6 to visit Manchester Museum, specifically to explore the Egyptian exhibits and undertake work shop sessions with museum educational staff.

 

We will leave school at 9:30 am and travel by coach to the museum.  The workshop is booked from 10.30-12.00 pm, followed by free exploration. We will arrive back at school in time for the end of the school day at 3:00 pm.

 

This visit is to be fully funded through school resources and is a fantastic opportunity for our children.

 

As this is an all day trip the children will need a packed lunch.   If your child has school dinners we will arrange for a packed lunch to be available on the day. Please indicate below if required.

 

I would be grateful if you could please sign and return the consent form below as soon as possible.

 

Yours sincerely

Broadbent Fold

Broadbent Fold Primary and Nursery School is an exciting, stimulating and inclusive place to work and learn. The school has been educating pupils for over forty years and we are proud to be at the heart of our community. The children are central to every decision and opportunity we offer and they play a major role in designing our curriculum. Working in partnership with parents and other outside agencies to ensure the best possible support and outcomes for children is Broadbent Fold’s number one priority. The Broadbent Fold curriculum is a strength of the school and inspires pupils to learn. The wide range of subjects help pupils acquire knowledge, understanding and skills in all aspects of their education.

We are a happy and active school who place a very high value on high standards and excellent behaviour. We wish our children to be happy and enjoy their learning in an environment that caters for all and respects others. We place a great deal of value on the children enjoying education, so, trips, visitors, exciting lessons and activities will be common place. I know the children will thoroughly enjoy the journey! I hope that as a parent at Broadbent Fold you find the experience a fulfilling one and you feel involved in the process of your child’s education. There is nothing more important than our children.

We work together to ensure children get the best and leave Broadbent Fold as well rounded successful citizens of the future. 'Learning Today for Tomorrow's World.'

Why not visit us and experience Broadbent Fold  for yourself? I would be delighted to show you around.
