School Blog

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to a new school year at Broadbent Fold. Welcome to new families and I hope you feel as welcomed as I do.  I am very excited to see what the wonderful pupils have in store for us this year. All the pupils look very smart in their uniforms and are showing that they are ready to learn. This is my first blog of many and I hope to share and update you with all the fabulous work and behaviour I see. 

Time Travel Tales!

We have some budding authors moving up to Year 5 next year!   During their last week in Year 4, children enjoyed telling their end of year Time Travel narratives to Year 3!  Not only had they written some amazing stories, Year 4 had designed and created their very own Time Travel objects which appeared in their tales!  These magical items included watches, clocks, hour glasses, stones, hats, tickets and books!  Children from Year 3 thought this made the stories even more exciting!  Brilliant writing and fabulous design and technology work too!  Mrs Blomeley

Nursery Friendships

Nursery enjoying playing with their friends. Their social skills and communication skills have improved so much this year. Our fabulous learning environment provides opportunities to develop children's confidence and speaking skills.


Stockport Air Raid Shelter

On Tuesday 9th July, we had a fantatsic day and went back in time to Stockport Air Raid Shelters, to experience life as an evacuee during World War Two. We dressed up in our evacuee outfits and were met in Stockport by Mrs Grundy and a warden. Throughout the day, we sang WWII songs, tried on gas masks, explored artefacts and tried on clothing, visited the shelters and much more. In the Air Raid Shelters, we walked around all the different tunnels, and explored the male and female toilets, the first aid room, the nursing area, the kitchen, the prison and the beds.

Sports Day

Wow, what a super afternoon KS1 have had! We have participated in our Sports Day today and had the most fun, all whilst managing to escape the rain! All of us joined in with lots of races including running, hurdles and even an obstacle course. All of the children showed their super attitudes towards sports by following the school's sports qualities; honesty, determination, self-belief, respect and teamwork. Well done Key Stage One!

Maraca Making

As part of our Sport's Week, each class has been assigned a country to follow in the Cricket World Cup. In Year 1, we have been following and learning about the West Indies. As part of our learning about the Caribbean countries, we explored different musical instruments and decided to make our own Caribbean maracas. We designed a band for our instrument using a range of shapes, colours and patterns before sticking it onto our bottle and filling with a range of materials to make a variety of sounds.
