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.

Super Inventors

All Year 3 entered British Science Week Competition with their amazing classroom inventions. We had cleaning robots, first aid robots and air purifying device! It was incredibly hard to select winning designs. They were all brilliant! These are our winners... Congratulation Lucy, Nasir, Isobel and Isabelle!


Science week

In Year 3 looked and spoke about innovations and what was meant by the term innovation. Children designed acrostic innovation poems and completed activities about classrooms of the future.  We can't wait to see the designs children complete at home for the science competition.

At home, children asked parents about their jobs, we shared these in class. Did you know engineers, food production managers and even hairdressers use science in their jobs. 

We watched an online live DNA detectives lesson by Dr Mandy where we learnt interesting facts about DNA.

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.
