Year 1 had a fabulous time in Forest School moving the wood chip around the young trees. This helps to keep the roots warm which makes the trees grow more easily. It also stops the grass from growing around the trees.
Well done to everyone who entered the British Science Week poster competition about connections.
I met with Mrs Blomeley and the Pupil Leaders this week to choose our school winners which was a very difficult decision.
Our KS1 winner is Nora!
Our KS2 winners are Matilda in Y5 and Sam G, Harriet, Thomas O and Boyd in Y6.
Well done to you all :)
The Eco Leaders have done a fantastic job this afternoon trimming the overgrown plants, weeding and litter picking. We also made friends with some very cute baby snails! Well done everyone!
All of the children in Key Stage 2 have worked so hard to transform our Art Gallery into a celebration of the forthcoming Coronation of King Charles III. They have used different medium to create their images; Year 3 used digital media to produce their versions of crowning King Charles, Year 4 used their portrait skills, Year 5 created new Royal crests by researching the King's hobbies and Year 6 chose stained glass windows as a backdrop for their amazing portraits. Well done everyone!
Everyone at Broadbent Fold loved their visit from freestyle footballer Ash Randall today. He holds 25 records in the Guinness book of Records and spoke to everyone about the importance of not giving up as he has been practising for 17 years. Ash Randall taught some of our pupils and even Miss Lewis and Miss Mainprize some new tricks. Thank you for your visit Ash!
Broadbent Fold had the enormous pleasure to have a visit from The Hive North this afternoon. They were here to perform a play about how families are all different. The children had an amazing time being trainee zoo keepers and completely interacting with the performance. Thank you so much for a fabulous afternoon.
The Great Big School Clean campaign runs from 17th March to the 2nd April 2023. I have pledged that as a school we can collect 12 bags of rubbish. Hopefully we can collect more!
Well done to all of the children who have already started litter picking on their way to school and around the school grounds. You are doing a fantastic job to help the environment!
Year 1 really enjoyed swinging and just 'hanging around' in the hammock!
The snow didn't stop our girls taking part in #letgirlsplay last week. It was lovely to see so many girls in KS1 and KS2 taking part in our girls football tournaments. A big thank you to our Year 6 Game Changers in making the #letgirlsplay events successful and encouraging lots of other girls to play football.
