Year 4's EGGceptional Creations!

Year 4's Egg Creations for the Easter Competition were just "EGGceptional"!  We were so impressed with their entries it was EGGstremely difficult to choose the winners!  Well done to everyone for their time and effort.  Mrs Blomeley

Times Table of the Week!

It's back!  By popular demand we are re-starting Times Table of the Week!  Every Monday we will choose two new times table facts (one for Key Stage 1 and one for Key Stage 2).  These facts will be displayed in every classroom and in key areas around the school.  Teachers and other staff will ask children about the initial fact, as well as all the other facts they can derive from it.  For example, if 2 x 19 = 18, what is 18 divided by 2?  We hope that parents can get involved too!  Thank you for your support!  Mrs Blomeley

Easter Week- a time for reflection

Last week, children and staff at Broadbent Fold took time to reflect on it being a year since the start of Covid and the first lockdown.

Easter for many is the most important time of year, a time to reflect on the Easter story and importance of hope.

Have a look at the muddychurch website, attached are some examples, the social media/website has a range of enjoyable activities to make children and adults reflect and think. Share your activities on Seesaw for class teachers to see.

British Science Week

Year 1 had a fantastic time taking part in British Science Week. We had an afternoon of experiments - making rainbows with skittles, making potions change colour and explode and trying to get paper to stick to a cup using just water. We also shared these experiments with Year 2 and learnt about what they had been doing in Science week. Year 1 also took part in a competition innovating products that could be used in the classroom. A big well done to Charlie and Sophia who won the competition with their amazing designs. 

Year 1 Forest School Week 1

Year 1 had a fantastic time in their forest school session today.  They played a sensory game trying to identify a tree while being blind folded, had a fun game of tree tig, found some pretty catkins and played in the mud kitchen.  We also learned some tree names like Alder, Silver Birch, Hazel and Oak.

Pupil Leaders Back in Action!

Back to school meant back in action for the Pupil Leadership Team!   Their first task was to help their classes create a "wish list" of books for their own reading areas and the library.  Then they attended  an important  meeting to discuss some exciting events happening soon!  New fitness equipment,that was chosen by last year's Pupil Leaders  for the KS2 playground is on its way!  There will be a grand opening in the next few weeks!  They also discussed fundraising ideas to help raise money to improve the EYFS Playground.  Ideas such as dress up days and Covid safe sales were discussed. 

World Book Day

So many people made fantastic tube book characters as part of World Book Day. The winner was Max with his Cat in the Hat design. Well done to Kai who won an award for the best costume. Both awards were really hard to choose winners for as there were so many great entries. Well done to everyone who took part. 

Thank you to Morrisons

I would like to say a huge thank you to Morrisons for donating a box of books which I will place in our school library.

A nice little treat for when we return to school
