Engineers of the Future - STEM Lego Workshop!

Year 4 spent a fantastic morning with Nick from Junior STEM, creating Lego models and bringing them to life using programmable motors and sensors.  The children learnt how Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are interlinked and spent the morning being engineers themselves, using Lego WeDo to build their robotic models.  This was such an amazing opportunity and the children's enjoyment and sense of achievement was clear to see.  Mrs Blomeley

Mysterious Drama in the Classroom!

Bringing their topic of "It's A Mystery" to a close, Year 4 enjoyed acting out the play scripts they had written.  They used the features of play scripts to create a mysterious drama, based on one of Harris Burdick's illustrations and captions. All of the children delivered their plays with great confidence - there are definitely some budding actors and actresses of the future in this class!  Mrs Blomeley

eSafety Workshop for Parents!

Following their work on Safer Internet Day, Year 4 invited parents in to a workshop to discuss the importance of eSafety.  Children and parents enjoyed the workshop which highlighted some important issues around the safe and responsible use of the internet.  A big thank you to all the parents and grandparents for taking the time to come in.   Mrs Blomeley

Pancake Day

As part of our Literacy lessons, we followed instructions for how to make pancakes. We enjoyed eating them with chocolate spread, lemon and sugar! 

Lego Stem Workshop

Children thoroughly enjoyed exploring how to build and control Lego using a tablet APP called WeDo 2.0 instruction. They learnt how to use algorithms to control their models. 

Maybe children would like to be an engineer.

Broadbent Fold on ITV News

Broadbent Fold were very lucky today to have ITV news come to our school to video some of the Little Rockies boxing afterschool club for a piece on Tyson Fury. They interviewed some of the children and videoed them working on their fitness and boxing skills that they have been learning over the last 6 weeks. It will be aired tonight at 6pm on Granada Reports, ITV News. 

Happy Half Term.

I would like to wish all families a happy and safe half term. I hope you get to enjoy lots of family time.

Look at Tameside libraries for fun science activities. Jodrell Bank have stargazing nights on - some nights are so clear you can see the planets; Neptune and Mercury!

Have a game of football or scrabble with your family and keep warm.

See you back on Monday 24th February all refreshed.
